Description: Minneapolis, Minnesota criminal law lawyer represented Defendant charged with drug trafficking.

From September 2021 through February 2022, Jerry Lee Milliken, 40, led a large-scale methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy that was based in Rochester, Minnesota and operated throughout southeastern Minnesota and elsewhere. Milliken organized the delivery of methamphetamine from a supplier in Kansas City, Missouri, to sub-distributors in the Rochester area. Milliken also collected and received drug proceeds and facilitated communications in support of the conspiracy. Between the fall of 2021 and the winter of 2022, law enforcement seized approximately 80 pounds of methamphetamine from the conspiracy during various enforcement operations.

Milliken pleaded guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court before Senior Judge Susan Richard Nelson to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and up to life in prison. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later time.

Aaron Raymond Dombovy, 30, one of Milliken’s coconspirators, pleaded guilty Wednesday, November 16, also to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. He also faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and up to life in prison.
