Co-conspirator Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Amy Griffith, 35, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on November 17, 2011, to 3 years in prison by Senior United States District Judge Lyle E. Strom, in Omaha, for her involvement in marijuana trafficking and money laundering activities occurring from Omaha to Arizona. In addition to her prison term, Jarrett will serve 3 years of supervised release following her release from prison.
Griffith was one of eleven people indicted with Shannon Williams in December 2009. Griffith was one of Williams’ drivers that helped him run his marijuana business while he was incarcerated in the Douglas County jail. On at least two occasions she drove drug proceeds from Omaha to Denver. Additionally on at least one occasion she stored over 500 pounds of the organization’s marijuana at her Omaha residence. This case was the culmination of a 15 month investigation that involved the I.R.S., F.B.I., Omaha Police Department, Bellevue Police Department, D.E.A. and several law enforcement agencies in Arizona.
U.S. Attorney Gilg stated, “This case involved a dedicated commitment from numerous federal and local law enforcement agencies. It is a great example of how a dangerous drug conspiracy can be investigated and successfully prosecuted.”
