Baldwin County Meth Cook Sentenced In Federal Court
MOBILE, Ala. – Anthony David Granger, 31, of Robertsdale, was sentenced to 54 months imprisonment in federal court today for his participation in a conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. Granger pled guilty to the charge in November of 2012, and was released from custody on conditions. His conditions of release were revoked when he tested positive for the use of illegal drugs. At the sentencing hearing today, United States District Court Judge Callie V. S. Granade denied Granger’s request to receive credit for “acceptance of responsibility” under the United States Sentencing Guidelines, finding that his use of illegal drugs while under conditions of release did not show an affirmative acceptance of responsibility or a turning away from criminal behavior. Judge Granade also ordered that Granger undergo drug treatment while in prison and after his release on a four-year term of supervision, which will follow his imprisonment. She did not impose a fine, but ordered that Granger pay the $100 special mandatory assessment.
The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Baldwin County Drug Task Force and the Loxley Police Department. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney=s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
