Dubuque Man Sentenced for Meth Fire
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (AP) -- A Dubuque man involved in an attempt to make methamphetamine that set fire to his apartment has been sentenced to more than seven years in federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the northern district of Iowa says 47-year-old Donald Sheldon was sentenced earlier this week after pleading guilty in April to attempting to manufacture and aiding and abetting the manufacture of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school.
Court documents say Sheldon allowed Joshuah Tiesman to use his apartment to make meth. The meth lab exploded, starting a fire in the apartment building that caused damage to the apartment building and an adjoining building.
Tiesman is currently serving 8 years in federal prison for his involvement in the methamphetamine cook and fire.
