Philadelphia Man Sentenced To Over 10 Years’ Imprisonment For Distributing Methamphetamine

HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Gregory A. Jackson, age 54, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on September 23, 2019, to 121 months’ imprisonment to be followed by five years on supervised release, by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner, for distributing methamphetamine.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Jackson was convicted in November 2018 after a two-day jury trial.  The evidence presented at trial showed that in September 2017, Jackson traveled from Philadelphia to York and delivered over 100 grams of pure methamphetamine to another individual.    

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Springettsbury Township Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the York County Drug Task Force.  Assistant United States Attorneys Carlo D. Marchioli and James T. Clancy prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
