MASON CITY, Iowa – A North Iowa man accused of three separate drug deals is pleading not guilty.

Shawn Lee Rockwell, 43 of Mason City, is charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine. The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office says Rockwell gave the drug to someone working with them on March 13, March 19, and March 22.

The drug deals all reportedly happened at Rockwell’s apartment.

The Sheriff’s Office says two of the crimes involved five grams or less while the third was for more than five grams of meth, which means Rockwell is charged with two “C” felonies and one “B” felony. “C” felonies carry a maximum 10 year prison sentence while “B” felonies go up to 25 years behind bars.

Rockwell’s trial is scheduled to start on August 21.
