Southwest Iowa Man Sentenced

A southwest Iowa man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for making methamphetamine near an elementary school. A U.S. District Court judge issued the sentence Tuesday for 31-year-old Jesse Salmons-Rice, of Malvern. He will serve eight years of supervised release after he completes his sentence.

Reports say Salmons-Rice pleaded guilty last September to a charge of manufacturing meth within 1,000 feet of school property. Investigators say Salmons-Rice made the meth in the loft of his garage in November 2012. That was less than 30 feet from Chantry Elementary School in Malvern.
