Valley meth man gets 23 years in prison

A Spokane Valley man will spend 23 years in prison for helping run a meth ring that distributed more than 33 pounds of the drug, the U.S attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Washington announced today.

Daniel A. Flaherty, 36, also will be on probation for 10 years after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. The family-based drug trafficking organization operated out of the Tri-Cities and led investigators to more than 30 pounds of meth and $700,000.

Federal agents found more than four pounds of meth in Flaherty’s storage unit in Spokane Valley in October 2008.

Flaherty will give up personal property and more than $23,000 seized from his bank account. He had a prior felony drug conviction that gave him a minimum penalty of 20 years in prison.

A raid at his home in 2004 dismantled his expensive lifestyle, according to an article you can read here.
