Career Offender Drug Dealer Sentenced To More Than Fourteen Years In Federal Prison

Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced that Dustin Dylan Glass, age 28, from Monroe, Georgia, was sentenced today by the Honorable C. Ashley Royal, United States District Judge in Athens, Georgia.  Mr. Glass was sentenced to 170 months imprisonment for distribution of methamphetamine.

Mr. Glass pled guilty to the charge on December 22, 2014.  As part of his plea agreement, Mr. Glass admitted to selling methamphetamine on June 12, 2014 and stipulated to possessing 7.77 grams of actual methamphetamine.  Mr. Glass’ prior state convictions include sale of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and battery.  Last month, an indictment was filed in the Superior Court of Newton County charging Mr. Glass with the offenses of violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act (3 counts), conspiracy to commit murder, aggravated assault (7 counts), violation of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act (15 counts) and possession of firearm during commission of a felony (7 counts).  The Newton County prosecution is pending.

“Mr. Glass has demonstrated a dangerous propensity for drug dealing and violence,” said U.S. Attorney Michael Moore.  “Today’s sentence of more than fourteen years in federal prison punishes Mr. Glass for his status as a career offender, and the citizens of Monroe will be safer while he serves time behind bars.”

The case was investigated by the Monroe Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorney Peter Leary prosecuted the case for the Government.

Inquiries regarding the case should be directed to Pamela Lightsey at the United States Attorney’s Office at 478-621-2603.
