August 13, 2021 10:08am
(Sioux City)-- A Primghar man has been sentenced to more than six years in federal prison on a drug charge. 38-year-old Jeremiah Bottjen of Primghar had pled guilty back in March of last year to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
As part of a plea deal, Bottjen admitted that on September 24, 2020, he was driving a vehicle that led a Clay County Sheriff's Deputy on a high speed chase where he eventually drove through a stop sign going 60 mph while construction workers were present and ultimately crashed his vehicle.
Deputies searched Bottjen and his vehicle and found a digital scale with methamphetamine residue and a torch. They also found a grocery sack at the scene with a softball-sized amount of meth in it.
Bottjen later admitted to distributing meth in Iowa from July of 2020 up until his arrest.
In addition to the prison time, Bottjen must also serve a three-year term of supervised release.
