Memphis, Tennessee Woman Sentenced To 42 Months For Methamphetamine Distribution

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Keaunta Keshawna Robinson, age 28, of Memphis, Tennessee was sentenced to 42 months’ imprisonment and 3 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)(A). The charges arose from an investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The Indictment alleged that on or about April 26, 2018, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, did knowingly and intentionally possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine (actual), a Schedule II controlled substance. The investigation originated with a traffic stop in Okmulgee County on I-40. 

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Over 50 grams of methamphetamine did not reach the destination intended by the defendant because of the good work of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. That intended destination was into towns and cities and into the hands of dealers and users. Her motive was profit, but instead she lost her freedom. We and our law enforcement partners must continue to be diligent to stop the flow of methamphetamine and other dangerous drugs into 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 Dean Burris represented the United States.
