Accused Drug Dealer Reaches Plea Deal

A Dyersville man accused of selling marijuana oil appears to have reached an agreement with prosecutors to avoid jail time. But another drug possession charge against him is still pending. 41-year-old Kory Manternach was arrested last fall after being seen throwing about a dozen marijuana oil containers in the garbage at a Dyersville fast food restaurant. He was charged with Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver, which is a felony. According to online court records, Manternach has struck a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to a lesser charge of Possession of Marijuana. He’s been sentenced to a deferred judgement that includes two years of probation. A deferred judgement means that if Manternach avoids any further legal trouble in those two years, the charge will be wiped from his record. A separate charge of Possession of Cocaine is still pending. Manternach’s trial on that charge is currently scheduled to begin in about a month.
