Baltic Woman Sentenced In Meth Distribution Conspiracy

A Baltic, South Dakota woman, convicted of her part in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy, has been sentenced to 130 months in custody, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release.

Judge Karen Schreier also ordered Tammy Hodgin, age 42, to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Hodgin was indicted for Conspiracy to Distribute 500 Grams or More of Methamphetamine by a federal grand jury on May 10, 2016. She pled guilty on September 6, 2016.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Hodgin was part of a group of people who began working together in July 2015 to distribute methamphetamine in South Dakota and elsewhere. Hodgin distributed methamphetamine she received from co-conspirators.

On three occasions in July and August, 2015, she sold methamphetamine to confidential sources in Minnehaha County, South Dakota.
