Robertsdale Meth Cook Sentenced In Federal Court

MOBILE, Ala. –  Jesse Knighten, 24, of Robertsdale, Alabama, was sentenced today in federal court to 54 months in federal prison for his participation in a methamphetamine manufacturing conspiracy.  United States District Court Judge Callie V. S. Granade imposed the sentence, but ordered that Knighten would receive 22 months credit against the 54-month sentence based on time he had spent in jail awaiting the imposition of sentence.  The judge ordered that Knighten undergo drug treatment, both during his custody sentence and after his release on supervision for a three-year term.  No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Knighten pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.

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.
