Spencer Man Receives Prison Sentence for Meth Conspiracy

A Spencer man was sentenced on Tuesday in Sioux City Federal Court to serve eight years in prison on a methamphetamine conspiracy charge.

Back in July, 35-year-old Kenneth Block pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine. Evidence showed that from February through September in 2021, Block and others distributed at least 2.5 kilograms of meth in the Spencer area. In late September of 2021, Block was found with approximately 170 grams of ice methamphetamine in his vehicle.

Along with the prison term, Block must serve a four-year term of supervised release following imprisonment. Block remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshall until he can be transported to a federal prison.
