For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Georgia

ALBANY: Charles E. Peeler, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announces that Ronnie Jones a/k/a “Dank,” age 37, of Boston, Georgia and Gina Curry, age 35, of Pavo, Georgia, were sentenced for Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Hugh Lawson in Macon, Georgia on October 5, 2018.  Mr. Jones was sentenced to serve 70 months in federal prison.  Ms. Curry received a sentence of 40 months in federal prison.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Mr. Jones and Ms. Curry were indicted on the charge on February 14, 2018, and each entered a separate guilty plea on July 12, 2018.  At the change of plea hearings, the Government established that on calls monitored by a court-authorized wiretap on Mr. Jones’ phone, Thomas County Vice Squad agents heard information regarding Mr. Jones’ storing cocaine at Ms. Curry’s residence.  On other monitored calls, agents heard information regarding Ms. Curry delivering drugs to Mr. Jones or to his customers.  A subsequent search at Mr. Jones’ residence revealed $11,818.00, 51.5 grams of crack cocaine, 273.8 grams of powder cocaine, and items indicating that crack cocaine had been manufactured inside the residence and packaged for resale.

“Participating in the drug trade leads to federal prison, not riches,” said U.S. Attorney Charles E. Peeler.  “I thank the Thomas County Vice Squad for its hard work in this case.”

The case was investigated by the Thomas County Vice Squad and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Leah McEwen.
