Tigue said he wasn’t surprised by the long sentence for Carlson, but he was critical of Doty’s attitude throughout the trial. Asked if the harsh sentence might deter other synthetic-drug dealers, Tigue said, “This prosecution was a far greater threat to Americans than Jim Carlson.”

Klobuchar called the sentence a victory that “sends a strong message about our commitment to cracking down on synthetic drugs and the people who push them.”

“Synthetic drugs are tearing families apart and claiming young peoples’ lives in Minnesota and across the country,” she said.
