Pine Ridge Woman, Dawn Dowty Sentenced to 10 Years for Distributing Meth

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Pine Ridge, South Dakota, woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Dawn Rose Dowty, age 29, was sentenced on July 29, 2019, to 10 years in federal prison, 5 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Dowty was indicted by a federal grand jury in March 2018. The charge related to Dowty and at least one other person distributing 500 grams or more of methamphetamine in the District of South Dakota and elsewhere between 2012 and 2018.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Badlands Safe Trails Drug Task Force, and the Rapid City Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gina Nelson prosecuted the case. Additional co-conspirators are pending trial.

Dowty was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
