Atmore Man Sentenced On Drug And Gun Charges

MOBILE, Ala. - Albert Emil Tillman, 34, was sentenced today in federal court for his participation in a scheme to manufacture methamphetamine and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Tillman pled guilty to the charges in March of 2012.

Judge Callie V. S. Granade imposed a sentence of 80 months imprisonment on each of the charges, and ordered that the sentences run concurrently. She also imposed a four year term of supervised release which will begin when Tillman is released from imprisonment, and ordered that he pay the special mandatory assessment of $200. No fine was imposed. As a condition of his supervised release, the judge ordered that Tillman undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse.

The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, the Bay Minette 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.
