Three Additional Individuals Sentenced on Methamphetamine Conspiracy Charges

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – On July 25, 2017, three additional individuals were sentenced by the Honorable R. Leon Jordan, U.S. District Judge, for their roles in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy centered in and around the Morristown, Tennessee area. Misty Munsey- Killian, 38, of Whitesburg, Tennessee, who was also convicted of participating in a money laundering conspiracy, will serve 235 months. Larry Wayne Martin, 54, of Russellville, Tennessee, and Jeremy Kane Jones, 31, of Morristown, Tennessee, will serve 120 and 110 months respectively.

 

According to the plea agreements on file with the U.S. District Court, the combined total amount of actual methamphetamine attributed to Munsey-Killian, Martin and Jones was between 235 to 700 grams.

 

Law enforcement agencies participating in the investigation included the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Hamblen County Sheriff’s Office, Morristown, Tennessee Police Department and the Third and Fourth District Judicial Drug Task Forces. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Wayne Taylor and David Gunn 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.
