Drug Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

May 7, 2013

MOBILE, Ala. - Lashaun Deon Williams, 35, of Mobile, was sentenced today to 15 years in federal prison. Williams pled guilty to two charges, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine and using, carrying and possessing a firearm in furtherance of and in connection with a drug trafficking felony, in January of 2013 before United States District Court Judge Callie V. S. Granade. At the sentencing hearing conducted today, the case prosecutor asked the judge to impose a sentence of 211 months, which was the low end of the advisory guidelines. Judge Granade, however, imposed only a 15-year sentence, which amounted to the statutory minimum sentence available. The drug charge carried a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years, and the gun count carried a minimum mandatory consecutive sentence of 5 years. The judge found that the total sentence of 15 years met the statutory purposes of sentencing in federal court.

Judge Granade also ordered that Williams serve a five-year term of supervised release, to follow his prison sentence, and that he pay the special mandatory assessment of $200. She also ordered that William undergo drug testing and treatment as a condition of his imprisonment and supervision.

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