FORT WORTH, Texas — Timothy Stephen Lee, 44, and his wife, Michelle Yvette Lee, 30, who were convicted at trial in October 2010 on felony drug offenses, have received long prison sentences, announced U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the Northern District of Texas. U.S. District Judge John McBryde sentenced Timothy Lee to life in federal prison and sentenced Michelle Lee to 30 years in federal prison. They were each convicted on two counts of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.

At trial, the government presented evidence that on March 2, 2010, Timothy Lee, the General of the Regional Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, and his wife, possessed approximately seven grams of methamphetamine, with the intent to distribute it. In addition, on July 16, 2010, they possessed approximately 366 grams of methamphetamine, with the intent to distribute it. On this occasion, the pair led police on a high speed vehicle chase in Fort Worth, during which methamphetamine and two firearms were tossed from their fleeing vehicle.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Fort Worth Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Frederick M. Schattman and Bret Helmer prosecuted the case.
