A Maquoketa, Iowa man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for making methamphetamine while he was on release pending trial after being previously charged in federal court with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of precursors.

32-year-old Randall Shady received the prison term after a February 13, 2012, guilty plea to one count of possession of pseudoephedrine knowing it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine and one count of manufacturing and attempting to manufacture methamphetamine while on pretrial release.

At the guilty plea, Shady admitted he obtained pseudoephedrine knowing it would be used it to manufacture methamphetamine from August 2010 through September 2011. He also admitted that on the weekend after being charged for this offense in federal court, then being arrested and released pending trial, he manufactured and attempted to manufacture methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a park in Maquoketa.

Shady was sentenced to 188 months' imprisonment, a special assessment of $200 was imposed and he must also serve a 6-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
