He was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand to 204 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Biliew is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
