Body Shop Owner Sentenced on Drug Charge

Written by The Mankato Free Press


Jesse Seifert


A Mankato, MN auto body shop owner who allegedly gave methamphetamine to employees was sentenced Wednesday, November 2 to 104 days in jail for possession of the drug only.

In April 2016, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Clear Choice Auto Body after receiving information that Jesse Seifert, 41, was distributing methamphetamine to employees. Seifert also lived at his business. Syringes that contained methamphetamine were found during the search, according to the criminal complaint.


Seifert, who has a prior drug conviction, pleaded guilty in July to felony drug possession.


A judge sentenced him to 160 days in jail with credit for 56 days already served. If accepted into the drug court program he could be released after less time.


Seifert also must spend five years on probation, with conditions including no drug or alcohol use. If he violates those terms he could be sent to prison.
