woman sentenced to 18 months in prison for distributing heroin and fentanyl near college and park | USAO-NDIA
A woman who distributed heroin and fentanyl in Dubuque, Iowa, was sentenced today to 18 months in prison in federal court in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Nicole L. Jarvis, 35, formerly of Dubuque, Iowa, was sentenced after pleading guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin and fentanyl and distributing heroin and fentanyl within 1,000 feet of a protected place.
In a plea agreement, Jarvis admitted to engaging in a drug-related conspiracy to distribute heroin and fentanyl on at least five occasions in Dubuque. Jarvis served as a liaison source, not a supplier. In the fall of 2020, Jarvis used Facebook Messenger and other communication devices to set up transactions. Jarvis then distributed heroin and fentanyl near Loras College and Madison Park.
Sentencing took place before United States District Court Judge CJ Williams. Jarvis was sentenced to 18 months in prison and is due to serve six years of supervised release following her prison term. There is no parole in the federal system. Jarvis remains in the custody of the United States Marshal until she can be transported to federal prison.
This case was investigated by the Dubuque Drug Task Force and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jason D. Norwood.
