Career Offender Sentenced to 110 Months for Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine
EUGENE, Ore. – On June 9, 2014, Gretchan Anderson, 43, of Portland, Oregon, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Michael McShane to 110 months in federal prison, in addition to the time she has been in custody since July of 2013, for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Upon her release from prison, Anderson will be on supervised release for four years.
Anderson is a career offender who was caught twice last year dealing methamphetamine. The first of those two incidents happened on February 26, 2013 in Portland and resulted in state charges. During the pendency of that state case, on July 19, 2013, law enforcement apprehended Anderson as she was traveling from Portland to Lane County to distribute methamphetamine, which resulted in the instant federal charge. Anderson has a lengthy criminal history including convictions for burglary in the first degree and manufacture of a controlled substance.
This case was investigated by DEA and the Lane County Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan J. Lichvarcik.
