A 53-year-old Carroll man was sentenced this week to up to 10 years in prison for dealing methamphetamine while he was on parole for similar crimes, according to court records.
Dean Martin Loew was charged last year with a felony controlled substance violation after he “entered into an agreement to deliver a controlled substance to another adult” in July, court records show.
It’s unclear in the documents whether the person who received the drug was working with law enforcement officers at the time.
Loew was charged in December after lab tests confirmed the drug was meth. He faced a potential punishment of up to 30 years in prison because of his previous drug convictions, but he received a lesser sentence as part of a plea deal.
Loew was imprisoned in 2014 for felony charges for dealing methamphetamine and marijuana, court records show. He was sentenced to up to 50 years in prison but was paroled in 2017, according to the Iowa Department of Corrections.
