Pierre Man Sentenced In Federal Court For Possessing And Distributing Fentanyl

(KCCR) — A Pierre man is sentenced in federal court Tuesday to eight months of federal prison time on a drug charge. U-S Attorney Ron Parsons says 25 year-old Darrell Hamann’s sentence includes three years of supervised release, a one-thousand dollar fine and a 100-dollar special assessment to the Federal Crime Victim’s Fund. Hamann was indicted on the charge by a federal grand jury in March and made a guilty plea to the charge of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance in May. Parsons says Hamann knowingly and intentionally conspired with other to possess and distribute fentanyl, which is a Schedule II controlled substance. The distribution by Hamann led to an individual who used the fentanyl needing emergency medical care which included two doses of the fentanyl counteractive drug Narcan. Hamann was immediately turned over to the U-S Marshals Service to begin his sentence.
