Man pleads guilty, gets probation

By Xiomara Levsen | Jan 16, 2014

A Washington County man has pleaded guilty to charges in relation to methamphetamine.

According to court records, Randy Vincent Rarick pleaded guilty to two class C felonies of conspiracy to manufacture, deliver, and/or possess with intent to deliver methamphetamine in the quantity of 5 grams or less, on Jan. 9, 2014. He also has to pay a fine of $1,000, the court record said.

A class C felony is punishable up to 10 years in prison, according to Iowa Code Section 124.401(1)(c)(6). Since Rarick pleaded guilty to the charges, his prison time was suspended and he was placed on probation for three years with the Eighth Judicial District Department of Correctional Services, his court record said.

The terms of Rarick’s probation are as follows: he will have evaluations and treatment that the Department of Correctional Services assigns to him; not use any controlled substances or go into taverns, liquor stores, or places where alcohol is sold; not associate with anyone known to be involved with criminal activity; will seek and maintain employment; comply with restitution payments; and submit to drug testing upon request of the Department of Corrections, the court record said.

He will have to pay his court appointed fees of $2,000, court costs, fines and surcharges, his court record said. His driver’s license has been revoked for 180 days after he becomes eligible to have a driver’s license, the court record said.

Rarick was originally charged with two Class B felonies in March 2013, in relation to the mobile meth lab found in the downtown square on Dec. 5, 2012, court records said. He admitted providing Kyle and Ronald Boileau with precursors to manufacture pseudoephedrine from March 1, 2012, to Aug. 31, 2012 and bought 20,640 milligrams of pseudoephedrine during this time period, his court record showed. He had received money for providing the Boileaus with the precursors to manufacture meth, his court record said.

A search warrant was executed at the now-demolished home located at 415 W. Madison St. in Washington on March 18, 2013, his court document said. Rarick was present at the time of the search warrant, which was his residence, his court record said.
