DAVENPORT, IOWA – On August 24, 2021, United States District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose sentenced Clinton Andrew Wynn, age 43, of Ottumwa, to 332 months in prison on gun and drug charges.
According to court documents, Wynn previously pleaded guilty to Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine and Carrying a Firearm During and in Relation to a Drug Trafficking Crime.
These charges arose from a traffic stop of Wynn in Fairfield on October 3, 2020, where Wynn was found in possession of 33 pounds of ice methamphetamine, a gun, and $11,541 cash. Wynn admitted he had been involved in importing and distributing ice methamphetamine in Southeastern Iowa. When officers in Ottumwa subsequently arrested Wynn on his federal warrant, Wynn struck multiple police vehicles.
Wynn has prior criminal convictions for assault, domestic abuse assault, assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, burglary, harassment, arson, violations of no contact orders, and OWI. At the time of this offense, Wynn was under criminal justice supervision for two felony drug offenses, a harassment first degree charge, and a charge for assault while displaying a dangerous weapon.
