Sterling Bastin, age 56, had originally pleaded guilty to distribution of methamphetamine in U.S. District Court. His sentence in federal court includes 5 years of supervised release.

Federal court records indicate in December 2020 and February 2021, Bastin sold more than 140 grams of meth.

According to federal court records, in May 2021 police tried to pull Bastin over but he sped on as speeds of 100 mph,. He eventually lost control and crashed in a ditch.

In the vehicle, police found a small amount of meth and a digital scale.
