MOBILE, Ala. –  Tessa Weaver Rivers, 39, of Mt. Vernon, Alabama, was sentenced today in federal court to a year and a day in federal prison for her participation in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.  Court documents establish that Rivers was involved in both the manufacture and the distribution of the drug in north Mobile County.  Rivers was arrested as the result of cooperation by a confidential informant working with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, who made controlled purchases of methamphetamine from Rivers.  United States District Court Judge Callie V.

Granade imposed the sentence, and revoked Rivers’ conditions of release to remand her to the custody of the United States Marshal’s Service to begin serving her sentence.  The judge ordered that Rivers undergo drug treatment after her release on supervision for a three-year term.  No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Rivers pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.

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.
