CEDAR RAPIDS — An Alabama man who distributed large quantities of methamphetamine from outside of Iowa in 2019 was sentenced Thursday to more than 18 years in federal prison.
Gilbert T. Brutley, 42, of Dothan, Ala., previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance after having been convicted of a serious felony drug offense.
During the plea hearing, Brutley admitted he and others distributed 50 grams or more of pure methamphetamine between February and September of 2019. He has a 2017 conviction for unlawful distribution of a controlled substance in Alabama, according to federal prosecutors.
U.S. District Judge C.J. Williams sentenced Brutley to 219 months and fined him $100. He also was ordered to serve 10 years of supervised release following his prison term.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Liz Dupuich and investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Manchester Police Department and Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.
