A Bismarck man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Donald Schlittenhardt, 43, on Monday to 20 years in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised probation, for possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it.
According to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, law enforcement officials found 1 pound of methamphetamine, street value of $50,000 to $70,000, during a search of Schlittenhardt's home on Sept. 26, 2008.
Schlittenhardt will serve the sentence at the same time as a sentence out of state court. According to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Schlittenhardt is serving a sentence at the James River Corrections Center scheduled to expire on Sept. 5, 2025.
