Norfolk woman sent to prison for role in meth trafficking ring


LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A Norfolk woman is going to prison for her role in a methamphetamine conspiracy, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Karina Rae Dieter, 51, was sentenced Thursday in federal court to 10 years in prison.

Law enforcement began investigating a drug trafficking ring based in Norfolk in May 2020.

Authorities found out that a California woman was mailing packages to Dieter and two other Nebraskans.

Dieter had received 198 grams of meth, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

When she was arrested, she had 93 grams of pure meth.

U.S. District Judge Robert F. Rossiter Jr. also sentenced Dieter to four years of post-prison supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.
