LeMars Man Pleads Guilty to Meth and Firearm Charges

A LeMars man will spend time in prison after pleading guilty to drug-related charges last Thursday in Sioux City Federal Court.

The charges against 48-year-old Timothy Mullally include one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, and one count of prohibited person in possession of firearms. At the plea hearing, Mullally admitted that between January 2022 through September 2022, he and others distributed more than two kilograms of methamphetamine. Evidence showed that on two occasions in August and September 2022, he distributed more than 800 grams of pure methamphetamine to an individual cooperating with law enforcement. During investigation of this matter, law enforcement and United States Postal Inspection Service intercepted a three-pound package of methamphetamine coming from California to Mullally’s house in September 2022. During the investigation, including a search warrant at Mullally’s properties and vehicles, law enforcement seized $5,830 and two firearms. Mullally admitted to being a regular user of methamphetamine, and thereby was prohibited from possessing any firearm.

Sentencing will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Mullally was taken into custody by the United States Marshal after the guilty plea and will remain in custody pending sentencing. On the drug conviction, Mullally faces between ten years and life in prison, a ten-million dollar fine, and at least five years of supervised release following any imprisonment. Mullally faces up to 15 years in prison for the firearms conviction.
