Omaha woman sentenced over 14 years for drug conspiracy
OMAHA, Neb. -- An Omaha woman was sentenced to more than 14 years in prison on Wednesday for drug conspiracy.
Acting United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that 25-year-old Haley Rose Marie Coffman of Omaha, was sentenced on Wednesday, in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for her participation in a methamphetamine drug conspiracy.
United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Coffman to 170 months in prison.
After her release from prison, she will begin a five-year term of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.
Court records said that on Oct. 6, 2021, deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Metro Fugitive Task Force were attempting to locate Coffman, who had an outstanding felony warrant for violating her bond conditions on a charge of possessing meth in Douglas County Court.
Responding to a tip, law enforcement located Coffman at an Omaha area motel. Law enforcement set up surveillance and observed Coffman and two others leaving the hotel and getting into a vehicle, which law enforcement then approached.
The driver of the vehicle then attempted to escape, striking a law enforcement vehicle occupied by a deputy, another vehicle, and the side of the motel before fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed. The driver then lost control of the vehicle, crashing into a construction site. All parties then fled on foot, but were apprehended a short time later.
The vehicle was impounded and inventoried. More than 300 grams of meth, a digital scale, and hypodermic needles were found in a bag on the floorboard.
Co-defendant Dustin C. Vogel is scheduled for trial on Feb. 7, 2023. Co-defendant Jonathan Miller was sentenced on Aug. 24, 2022, to 205 months for his role in the meth conspiracy and assaulting an officer with a dangerous or deadly weapon. When released, he will serve a three-year term of supervised release.
