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

U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced that DAMIEN JACKSON, age 37, of Houma, LA, was sentenced today after having pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture containing methamphetamine.  

United States District Judge Martin L.C. Feldman sentenced JACKSON to 125 months’ imprisonment and a supervised release period of 4 years.

According to court documents, on July 5, 2016, law enforcement arrested JACKSON shortly after JACKSON took possession of a U.S. mail parcel containing approximately 455 grams of methamphetamine.  JACKSON admitted that he intended to sell a portion of the methamphetamine to his codefendant, James Siglar.  For his part, Siglar was later arrested, pled guilty, and was sentenced to 37 months’ incarceration. 

U.S. Attorney Strasser praised the work of the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Houma Police Department, and the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys James S.C. Baehr and Brandon S. Long are in charge of the prosecution.
