Frederiksen gets 10 more years on drug charges

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Casey Frederiksen, one of the men at the center of the investigation into the disappearance and murder of Evelyn Miller, was sentenced to 10 more years in prison on federal drug charges.

Frederiksen was sentenced Wednesday morning in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.

He pleaded guilty to one count of possessing pseudoephedrine and knowing or having reasonable cause to believe it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine back on August 20, 2009.

Court documents say that Frederiksen stole pseudoephedrine from his former employer, K-Mart, between 2004 and June 2005 and gave it to meth manufacturers.

The documents go on to say that he received meth in exchange for the pills.

Frederiksen also admitted to lying under oath about the pseudoephedrine scheme while talking to investigators about the disappearance and murder of his girlfriend's daughter, Evelyn Miller, back in July of 2005.

The 10-year sentence will be added onto the 14-year sentence he is currently serving after being convicted on federal child porn charges.

Frederiksen pleaded guilty in 2006 to possessing and attempting to possess child porn.

He was also sentenced to three-years of supervised release after the prison term.

There is no parole in the federal system.
