CONROE, TEXAS WOMAN SENTENCED TO 30 MONTHS FOR FEDERAL DRUG VIOLATIONS
(Beaumont, TX) United States Attorney Becky Gregory announced today that a 21 year old Conroe, Texas woman has been sentenced to 30 months for federal drug violations in the Eastern District of Texas.
JAYNA MARIE SPURLOCK had pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing methamphetamine. Spurlock was sentenced today during an appearance before the Honorable Judge Marcia Crone. Spurlock will also be required to serve a 36 month period of supervised release after completing her term of imprisonment.

After making additional sales to the undercover officers, for various amounts, Spurlock and an unknown male met with officers and sold 136.9 grams of methamphetamine to the officers in exchange for $4100.00.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John Craft.
