RALEIGH - United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that in federal court yesterday, Chief United States District Judge James Dever sentenced TYSHIK-KEE WILLIAMS, 21, of Henderson, North Carolina, to 240 months imprisonment followed by 3 years supervised release. 

A Federal Grand Jury returned a Criminal Indictment on January 16, 2013, charging WILLIAMS with one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, in violation of Title 18 U.S.C. §922, and 2 counts of Distribution of Heroin, in violation of Title 21 U.S.C. §841.  On April 9, 2013, WILLIAMS pleaded guilty to all counts without a plea agreement.

The evidence in the case demonstrated that, on or about March 30, 2011, WILLIAMS was present in a hotel room during a search of that room by law enforcement.  Found during the search was a loaded .25 caliber handgun, other ammunition and a large quantity of heroin.  WILLIAMS admitted that the .25 caliber firearm was his.  The evidence also demonstrated that on or about January 18, 2012, and February 1, 2012, respectively, WILLIAMS sold a quantity of heroin to an informant working with the Henderson Police Department.  Evidence presented at sentencing demonstrated that WILLIAMS was responsible for multiple shootings and robberies in the Henderson area and that, while being held on state charges, WILLIAMS solicited robberies and drug trafficking activities from other individuals of the Money Gang Mob (MGM). 

Investigation of this case was conducted by the Henderson Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  Assistant United States Attorney Rudy E. Renfer represented the government.
