Spokane Man Sentenced in Federal Court

Spokane – William D. Hyslop, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that Daniel F. Humphrey, age 43, of Spokane, Washington was sentenced after having pleaded guilty on September 3, 2019, to distribution of 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. Chief United States District Judge Thomas O. Rice sentenced Humphrey to a 140-month (11.6 years) term of imprisonment, to be followed by a 5-year term of court supervision after he is released from federal prison.

According to information disclosed during court proceedings, Humphrey sold over 200 grams of methamphetamine during a “controlled buy” conducted by members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force. Investigators also executed a warrant to search Humphrey’s residence and travel trailer, which resulted in the seizure and forfeiture of over $380,000 in U.S. currency.

United States Attorney Hyslop said, “The sentence imposed reflects the serious consequences drug traffickers face for trying to bring illicit drugs into our communities. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Washington and our federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement partners remain vigilant in protecting the community from drug traffickers.”

This case was investigated by the Spokane Resident Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force and Spokane Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Patrick J. Cashman, an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington.
