Okemah Resident Sentenced For Assault, Firearm, And Drug Related Offenses In Indian Country And Escape From Federal Custody
MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Brandis Nicole Fish, age 36, of Henryetta, Oklahoma was sentenced to 110 months’ imprisonment, and 4 years of supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(B).
The Indictment alleged that from on or about January 27, 2020, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.
The charges arose from an investigation by the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Safe Trails Task Force. The Safe Trails Task force is made up of a coalition of numerous Federal, State, Local and Tribal partners. The Safe Trails Task Force allows participating agencies to combine limited resources and increase investigative coordination to target violent crime, drugs, gangs, and gaming violations.
United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “The distribution of methamphetamine is often times linked to violent crime. Investigations and prosecutions of distributors disrupts drug trafficking organizations and makes communities safer. The FBI Safe Trails Task Force along with the partner agencies that unite to create it are making a positive impact on Eastern District communities.”
“This sentence shows that violating our federal drug laws carries serious consequences,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Melissa Godbold. “The FBI will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our law enforcement colleagues to fight those who peddle this poison in our communities.”
The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Ryan Conway represented the United States.
