A 51-year-old man charged as part of a large-scale methamphetamine bust was sentenced Friday to serve 16 to 18 years in prison.

Norman Paul Frederick was one of the 41 people arrested or charged in a multiagency meth bust conducted over the past year. He was charged with conspiring with one or more people to possess with the intent to deliver methamphetamine, according to court records.

Frederick was said to have traveled to Las Vegas and California to obtain drugs he and a cohort then delivered in Wyoming, according to past reports. A tapped phone call indicated Frederick and Lea Lewis, who may have been in a romantic relationship, traveled to obtain the drugs and discussed payment and delivery options with customers via text and phone conversations.

Assistant District Attorney Randall B. Carnahan recommended Frederick receive credit for the 192 days already served and participate in a substance abuse program while incarcerated.

Without comment from the defendant, Judge Catherine Wilking sentenced Frederick to the agreed-upon prison sentence and ordered him to pay court fines.

A half-dozen other people arrested in the drug sweep have pleaded guilty to various charges and received sentences ranging from three years of supervised probation to 14 to 17 years in prison.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
