and Anthony Conner All
Prison Time on Methamphetamine Charges
LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA -- A mother and her three sons, all of whom have pled guilty to conspiring to sell methamphetamine in the Rockbridge, Rockingham and Augusta County areas of Central Virginia since at least 2004, have been sentenced in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia.
In May 2011, a federal grand indicted Camilla Ramirez, a.k.a. “Momma”, age 50, of Buena Vista, Nathan Conner, age 30, of Waynesboro, Anthony Conner, age 28, of Buena Vista and David Allen Taylor Jr., age 32, of Buena Vista, with a variety of charges related to the distribution of methamphetamine.
Each of the defendants have previously pled guilty to conspiring to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine. Last week in United States District Court, Camilla Ramirez was sentenced to 96 months of federal incarceration and five years of supervised release thereafter and Nathan Conner was sentenced to 120 months of federal incarceration and five years of supervised release thereafter. Previously, Anthony Conner and David Taylor were each sentenced to 120 months of federal incarceration and five years of supervised release thereafter.
In a separate, but related case, Juan Almanza-Hernandez, Camilla Ramirez’s boyfriend and the family’s source of methamphetamine, previously pled guilty to one count of conspiracy with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. In January, he was sentenced to 120 months of federal incarceration.
The investigation of the case was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Rockbridge Regional Task Force, which is made up of officers from the Rockbridge County Sheriff’s Office, the Lexington Police Department and the Buena Vista Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Thomas Cullen is prosecuting the case for the United States.
