MOBILE, Ala. - Cecily Ann Colvin, 23, of Theodore, Alabama, was sentenced today in federal court for her participation in a scheme to manufacture methamphetamine. Colvin pled guilty to the charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine in April of this year.

Court documents showed that Colvin and her co-defendant Clarence Lee were living at a trailer in Grand Bay, Alabama, when a DHR case worker arrived to perform a safety check on two of Colvin’s children who also lived there. The case worker observed materials which appeared to be a meth lab in the trailer and contacted the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the call and arrived at the scene. One of the children was present at the residence at that time with a relative. Colvin, Lee and the second minor child arrived in a vehicle while the deputies were there. The deputies found a pistol in the vehicle and confronted Colvin and Lee about the circumstances, asking for consent to search the residence. Both provided permission to search and the deputies found materials used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Colvin admitted her involvement in the scheme after she was advised of her rights by the deputies. She admitted that Lee and another co-defendant Miles Alexander cooked meth at the residence. She and the others bought pseudoephedrine used in the methamphetamine manufacturing process.

This morning,United States District Court Judge William Steele imposed a sentence of 48 months imprisonment in the case. Judge Steele also ordered Colvin to undergo drug abuse treatment and mental health counseling during her imprisonment and after she is released on three years of supervision following her imprisonment. He ordered that Colvin pay the mandatory $100 special assessment, but found that she was not financially able to pay a fine. Colvin was taken into custody immediately following the imposition of sentence.

The case was investigated by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
