Stilwell Man Sentenced To 40 Months For Methamphetamine Distribution

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Nathan Bryce Moton, age 44, of Stilwell, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 40 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 charges arose from an investigation by the Krebs Police Department, the McAlester Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  

The Indictment alleged that on or about February 18, 2018, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable quantity of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Rural Oklahoma is no stranger to the destruction caused by Methamphetamine. It destroys people, families, and communities. Dealers do not concern themselves with the havoc they introduce or maintain. Their worry is profit and in some cases feeding their own addictions. We must remain diligent in our efforts to disrupt drug trafficking organizations and their supply chains.”

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 Rob Wallace represented the United States. The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
