Two men from Iowa City and one from Fort Dodge will serve multiple years in prison on drug charges. Fifty-seven-year-old Patrick Toomey was sentenced to 63-months or just over five years in prison, while 63-year-old Thomas Finley was sentenced to 262 months or over 22 years in prison.
Finley and Toomey, who are from Iowa City, admitted to bringing heroin to a person who used it and died in March of 2011. Finley also admitted to bringing heroin to a person undergoing inpatient drug treatment at a Cedar Rapids hospital in May of 2011. The person was found unresponsive the next morning and later died from an overdose.
In an unrelated case, 46-year-old Wade Heiden of Fort Dodge was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. Heiden was arrested in October of 2010 and officers said he was in possession of individually wrapped methamphetamine, which he intended to sell.
All three will have to serve their full sentences, as there is no parole in the federal system.
