Drug Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

May 13, 2013

MOBILE, Ala. - David McArthur Trotter, of Grand Bay, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court today as a result of his guilty plea to a federal indictment in August of 2011. Trotter pled guilty to two counts in the indictment charging conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Senior United States District Court Judge Charles R. Butler, Jr., imposed the sentence this morning, ordering that Trotter serve 10 years in federal prison on each count, concurrently. Judge Butler ordered that Trotter serve 10 years on federal supervision following his release from imprisonment at the completion of the 10-year prison term. In addition, Trotter was ordered to pay $200 in special mandatory assessments, and a forfeiture judgement was entered as to a diamond-encrusted watch seized from Trotter at the time of his arrest.

The investigation was conducted by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security Investigations. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria A. Bedwell.
