A Long Beach man has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for participating in a conspiracy that involved delivering large amounts of methamphetamine from California to central South Dakota, federal prosecutors announced today.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in South Dakota said 35-year-old Jamaul Carter, who also went by Mud or Mudd Roll, was a supplier of methamphetamine to several people in the South Dakota area, including on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation

“Carter would ship multiple pound quantities or personally deliver multiple pound quantities of methamphetamine to these various individuals on the reservation where the drugs were then distributed on the reservation,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release. “During the course of the conspiracy Carter conspired to distribute over 100 pounds of methamphetamine.”

Prosecutors said the scheme started in September 2021 and continued until November 2022.

After an investigation that included the FBI, ATF and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, Carter was indicted by a federal grand jury.

Prosecutors said he pleaded guilty in August to a charge of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance and was sentenced on Dec. 18.
