Before Judge Robert E. Sosalla in Tama County District Court in Toledo on Aug. 10:
Larry Lynn Robinson, 52, Oelwein was sentenced to a suspended 10-year prison term on a charge of conspiracy to deliver less than 5 grams of methamphetamine. A $1,000 fine was also suspended.
Robinson entered an Alford Plea on the charge on June 18. An Alford plea is generally not an admission of guilt but recognizes the probability enough evidence exists which would result in a conviction.
He was placed on probation for three years to the 6th Judicial District Department of Correctional Services. His driver's license was suspended for 180 days.
Robinson was charged on June 10, 2011, in which court records say he was identified as a co-conspirator of a narcotics trafficking operation with ties to Marshalltown, Waterloo and Oelwein. Robinson was allegedly found to be part of the conspiracy when involved in a traffic stop in Tama County.
He had been observed in an undercover operation placing a bag in the trunk of his car. A subsequent search of the vehicle by a trained dog indicated the presence of illegal narcotics in the car.
The bag contained more than $10,000 in cash and according to the record, Robinson admitted in an interview after stop he was going to use the money to purchase more than five grams of methamphetamine which he intended to distribute to his customers.
The conspiracy charge was fined by the Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement.
Jasmin Alagic, 29, Marshalltown, was sentenced to five years in prison and fined $3,125 for 3rd offense drunken driving. He pled guilty on May 21. The prison sentence is to be served concurrently with a 2nd offense drunken driving sentence being served by Alagic imposed in Black Hawk County. His driver's license was revoked for six years.
Alagic was charged at U.S. Highway 63 and O Avenue on March 4 by Tama County deputy Sheriff Joe Quandt.
