COVINGTON, KY - The U.S. Attorney’s Office, the U.S Probation Office and the Pendleton County Sheriff’s Office jointly announced today that a Falmouth, Ky., man with several prior drug convictions was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison for manufacturing methamphetamine.
U.S. District Court Judge David L. Bunning enhanced 47-yeaer-old Gary Gregg’s sentence because he qualified as a career offender. A career offender is someone with two previous violent or drug felony convictions. Gregg has multiple prior convictions related to methamphetamine.
Gregg admitted that he manufactured methamphetamine at his home in Falmouth while on supervised release from a previous conviction.
Gregg pleaded guilty to the charge in May of 2012.
Under federal law, Gregg must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence, and, upon release, will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for six years.
The investigation was conducted by the United States Probation Office and the Pendleton County Sheriff’s Office. The U.S. Attorney’s Office was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert K. McBride.
