Two-Time Drug Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 7, 2013

MOBILE, Ala. - Charles Pierre Watson, 29, of Bay Minette, was sentenced this morning in federal court on his second federal drug conviction. Watson pled guilty to six counts of possession with intent to distribute of crack cocaine, and this morning, Judge Kristi Dubose imposed a sentence of 54 months imprisonment. Watson was also ordered to serve a six-year term of supervised release, which will commence at the completion of his prison sentence. No fine was imposed, but Watson was ordered to pay $600 in special mandatory assessments.

Judge Dubose ordered that Watson’s new sentence would run consecutive to a term of 24 months he was serving on a revocation of the supervised term that followed his original conviction. Court documents showed that Watson was convicted in 2006 of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, and in 2007, he was ordered to serve 115 months imprisonment. His prison sentenced was reduced in 2008 to 88 months as a result of the amendment to the federal sentencing guidelines and again in 2009, down to 54 months, as a result of his cooperation with authorities. His supervised release term, which was imposed to follow his release from imprisonment, was revoked in 2011, and he was ordered to serve an additional 24 months in custody for violation of the conditions imposed in connection with his supervision during that time.

This case was investigated by the Bay Minette Police Department and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Gloria Bedwell in the United States Attorney’s Office in Mobile.
