Dubuque Man in Prison Following Meth Arrest
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- A Dubuque man has been sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for trying to make methamphetamine near an elementary school.
Cory L. Cole was given the sentence Tuesday on a charge filed in August. It includes orders that he participate in a drug abuse treatment program and a vocational training program while incarcerated.
A federal indictment says the 47-year-old Cole attempted to make meth in May within 1,000 feet of Fulton Elementary School. Authorities found meth-making equipment in his home after a fire broke out at the residence.
Cole was also sentenced Tuesday to six years of extended supervision after his release from prison.
