            TYLER, TX --            U.S. Attorney Rebecca Gregory announced today that a 45-year-old Atlanta, Louisiana man has been sentenced to federal prison for drug violations in the Eastern District of Texas. 

            TIMOTHY TODD BRADY pleaded guilty on June 19, 2008, to distribution of methamphetamine and possessing methamphetamine in prison and was ordered today to serve 60 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Michael H. Schneider.

            According to information presented in court, on Oct. 11, 2007, Brady was stopped by a DPS Trooper on IH-20 in Van Zandt County.  A search of the vehicle during the traffic stopped revealed nearly 200 grams of methamphetamine in a blue bag in the passenger compartment of the vehicle.  Then, on Dec. 19, 2007, while a prisoner at the Gregg County jail, Brady was found to be in possession of over 7 grams of methamphetamine hid in a clear plastic bag in his underwear. 

            This case was investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Highway Patrol, the Gregg County Sheriff's Office, and the U.S. Marshals Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Noble.
