London Man Sentenced to 248 Months for Trafficking in Methamphetamine and Firearms charges
For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Kentucky
LONDON, Ky., — Bobby Green, 42 of London, was sentenced this week to 248 months in prison, by United States District Court Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove, for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, four counts of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Green had previously pled guilty to the drug offenses, but went to trial on the firearms charges. Following a 2-day trial, a federal jury sitting in London found Green guilty of the firearms offenses, in August of 2018.
Under federal law, Green must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence, and, upon release, will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for five years.
Robert M. Duncan, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Stuart Lowery, Special Agent in Charge, ATF;, and Richard Sanders, Commissioner of the Kentucky State Police, jointly made the announcement.
The investigation was conducted by the ATF and the KSP. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney W. Samuel Dotson.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Attorney General reinvigorated PSN in 2017, as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, local strategies to reduce violent crime.
