      Burlington man sentenced on federal cocaine conspiracy

      A Burlington man has been sentenced in federal court for drug related charges.

      United States District Judge John A. Jarvey has sentenced Corey Damon Keys, 29, of Burlington, to 151 months imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute cocaine. He was also ordered to serve five years of supervised release following the imprisonment, and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims Fund.

      Starting around March 2012 and continuing through April 2013, Keys conspired with other persons to distribute cocaine in the Burlington area.

      On multiple occasions during that time, co-defendant Shane Francis Culbertson sold an undercover law enforcement agent cocaine in multi-ounce quantities. Keys conspired with Culbertson for some of those transactions.

      On January 21, 2014, Judge Jarvey sentenced Culbertson, also of Burlington, to 30 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release following imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

      On January 24, 2014, co-defendants Akeem Levelle Eison and Zachary Robert Shullaw, both of Burlington, were also sentenced by Judge Jarvey to 100 months and 37 months imprisonment, respectively, for conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Both were also ordered to serve three years of supervised release following the imprisonment and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims Fund.

      This case was investigated by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, the Burlington, Iowa, Police Department, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Southeast Iowa Narcotics Task Force. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney??s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
