A 33-year-old Lincoln man has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for his involvement in a conspiracy to sell meth in the area.

Michael Elmshauser also will serve four years on supervised release for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine. He pleaded guilty.

U.S. Attorney Joe Kelly said information provided to law enforcement indicated Elmshauser was responsible for the distribution of at least 3 pounds of methamphetamine in the Lincoln area between 2014 and 2017.

In June 2017, Lincoln Police stopped Elmshauser and his co-defendant, Shannon Gillispie, and found a small amount of methamphetamine in Gillispie's purse.

Five months later, Elmshauser sold small amounts of meth twice to an undercover officer.

Gillispie pleaded guilty to conspiracy and is set for sentencing in May.
