A Cedar Rapids man who pled guilty in conspiracy to make and distribute methamphetamine will spend 35 years in federal prison. Investigators say 28-year-old Jacob William Brisbin led a drug trafficking organization that made meth daily. He personally made over three pounds of meth and had a network of individuals who distributed the drug on his behalf.
They say he also distributed “Ice” meth to various customers and kept several firearms as part of his business. On top of that, court records show Brisbin tried to obstruct justice while in the Linn County Jail by influencing the testimony of government witnesses. He was sentenced to 420 months in federal prison where there is not parole.
