DAVENPORT, Iowa-- On February 23, 2018, United States Chief District Court Judge John A. Jarvey sentenced Chelsea Ross Meier, III, to 90 months in prison as the result of his plea of guilty to possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. Meier, age 35, of Davenport, Iowa, was also ordered to serve four years of supervised release and pay $100 to the Crime Victim’s Fund.
