Georgia Woman Sentenced for Methamphetamine Possession and Distribution

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Louisiana

Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that APRIL NICOLE GRIZZARD, age 32, of Milledgeville, George, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to two counts of a Superseding Indictment. GRIZZARD was charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fifty grams or more of methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute fifty grams or more of methamphetamine.


U.S. District Judge Martin L.C. Feldman sentenced GRIZZARD to time served (10 months in jail prior to being released on bond) and five years’ supervised release.


According to court documents, in September of 2014, a woman in Atlanta agreed to deliver one-half pound of methamphetamine to an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Metairie. The woman employed an individual named ALLISON CHRISWELL to deliver the drugs. GRIZZARD, who assisted in obtaining the drugs for delivery, accompanied CHRISWELL to Metairie to deliver the drugs. When GRIZZARD and CHRISWELL arrived in Metairie with the methamphetamine, DEA Agents arrested them.


CHRISWELL pled guilty to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and was sentenced 96 months incarceration, followed by five years of supervised release and a $100 special assessment.


Acting U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Drug Enforcement Administration in investigating this matter. Assistant U.S. Attorney Andre’ Jones was in charge of the prosecution.
