LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A man will spend over a decade in prison for selling meth in Norfolk, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.

Dallas Sherman Rhinehart, 53, was sentenced Friday to 12 years and 10 months in prison for his participation in a methamphetamine drug conspiracy.

In May 2020, investigators identified Rhinehart as someone who was selling meth in Norfolk.

On July 6 and 22, authorities set up “controlled buys” of meth from Rhinehart, according to the attorney’s office.

In total, authorities bought 52 grams of pure meth and 30 grams of a mixture containing meth, the attorney’s office says.

After his release from prison, Rhinehart will serve a five-year term of supervised release.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Rhinehart’s accomplices include Katherin Marie Tacheira, who plead guilty and is awaiting sentencing, according to the attorney’s office.
