At sentencing, the judge found that Sizemore was responsible for the distribution of more than 1.4 kilograms of ice (methamphetamine with a purity level of at least 80 percent).

The offense occurred between June 2016 and November 2017.

Sizemore’s sentence includes three years of supervised release.

The investigation was conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Carbondale Police Department. The Jackson County States Attorney’s Office also assisted in the investigation.
