Armed Drug Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

MOBILE, Ala. –  Jakeith Terrell Campbell, 31, of Mobile, was sentenced in federal court today to a total term of 35 years imprisonment.  Campbell entered guilty pleas to charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine, and two counts of using, carrying and possession of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking offense.  Judge Callie V. S. Granade imposed the sentence, which consisted of consecutive penalties required by federal law for the serious drug and gun offenses.

The gun penalties require the imposition of consecutive mandatory terms of 5 years and 25 years.  The sentence for the drug offense was an additional 5 years.  The judge ordered a five-year term of supervised release, which will commence when Campbell is released from imprisonment, and a total of $300 in special mandatory assessments.  No fine was imposed.

The case was investigated by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, the Mobile Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney=s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
