Georgia Man Sentenced To 120 Months For Crack Cocaine Conspiracy

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – On Aug. 27, 2014, Micah Antwan Still, 25, of Covington, Ga, was sentenced by the Honorable J, Ronnie Greer, U.S. District Court Judge, to serve 120 months in federal prison. Still had previously been convicted of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.

In 2012 law enforcement began investigating a large-scale crack cocaine conspiracy originating out of Atlanta. As part of the conspiracy, numerous individuals, including Still, trafficked kilogram quantities of powder cocaine to Johnson City. Still facilitated the procurement of a series of rental cars in Georgia which were used to transport and distribute the drugs. Upon arrival in Johnson City, the drugs were manufactured into crack cocaine and then distributed throughout the area. The resulting drug sale proceeds were subsequently used to procure additional powder cocaine and repeat the cycle of distribution.

Individuals involved in this conspiracy who have already been sentenced include: Tavares Lashaun Dalton, 36, of Covington, Ga., who was sentenced to serve 240 months in prison; Marcus Lavoya Holliman, 36, of Atlanta, who was sentenced to serve 210 months in prison; Devin Deonte Blalock, 20, of Jonesboro, Ga., who was sentenced to serve 120 months in prison; Kwanza Tarveze Worthy, 20, of Atlanta, who was sentenced to serve 120 months in prison; Don Juan Glass, Jr., 22, of Atlanta, who was sentenced to serve 120 months in prison; Uhamma Castillo Delgado, II, 24, of Johnson City, Tenn., who was sentenced to serve 120 months in prison; Demario Jenard Serchion, 29, of Atlanta, who was sentenced to serve 77 months in prison; and Cody Alan Sherrill, 22, of Jonesborough, Tenn., who was sentenced to serve 41 months in prison. Five others remain to be sentenced in Greeneville, while still others are awaiting prosecution for their involvement in the conspiracy.

This long term investigation was the product of a partnership between the Johnson City, Tennessee Police Department; the First Judicial District Drug Task Force; and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Assistant United States Attorney Nick Regalia represented the United States.

This case was a result of the Department of Justice’s Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s drug supply reduction strategy. OCDETF was established in 1982 to conduct comprehensive, multi-level attacks on major drug trafficking and money laundering organizations. Today, OCDETF combines the resources and expertise of its member federal agencies in cooperation with state and local law enforcement. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt, and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking and money laundering organizations and those primarily responsible for the nation’s drug supply.
