NOV 13 -- (BOWLING GREEN, KY) - U.S. Attorney David L.

United States District Judge Joseph H. McKinley, Jr. also sentenced Todd to 5 years supervised release following incarceration. There is no parole in the federal judicial system.

On July 23, 2008, Todd pled guilty to all eight counts in the indictment which included five drug trafficking charges involving three different drugs.

In addition to the six drug charges, Todd also admitted to intimidating and attempting to intimidate and threaten a material witness involved with this case.
