Mannon sentenced to federal prison in Kimball court


Shawn Mannon, 39, of Kimball, was sentenced Friday, Nov. 6 for distribution of methamphetamine, a class II felony, in the Kimball County District Court. Mannon will carry out a sentence of 48 to 72 months concurrently with a federal prison sentence for violating the conditions of his supervised release, according to information from Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub, who was appointed special prosecuting attorney for the case.

According to the arrest affidavit, Nebraska State Patrol conducted two controlled methamphetamine purchases from Mannon in October and November of 2014. The second purchase was an eighth of an ounce of meth.

Mannon appeared before the Honorable Derek Weimer in March 2015 for arraignment on three counts of delivering methamphetamine, two of which are class II felonies for delivery within 1,000 feet of a playground. In September Mannon pled no contest and entered into a plea deal for a charge of one count of distribution of a controlled substance.

Schaub stated that he was pleased that Mannon received more than the minimum possible sentence, but adds that he was hoping he would have to serve both his federal sentence and his state sentence consecutively.

“We were pleased with the outcome of the sentencing,” reported Mannon’s attorney Stacy Bach, “we are also pleased that his sentence will run concurrently with his federal sentencing and he can serve his full term at the federal level.”
