OAKLAND – Alan Daniel Wilson, also known as “Al Pill,” was sentenced today to 200 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney Melinda Haag and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge David J. Johnson.

Wilson pleaded guilty on October 2, 2014, to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(a)(1).  According to the plea agreement, Wilson admitted to possessing 616.4 grams of methamphetamine for sale as well as $14,969 in drug trafficking proceeds at the time of his arrest on October 23, 2013.  According to the government’s sentencing memorandum, Wilson, a member of the Co Co Boys gang, was a parolee-at-large when he was arrested by the Antioch Police Department.  Wilson was arrested following a high-speed chase through residential streets in Antioch.  Wilson qualified as a “Career Offender” under federal sentencing guidelines due to his multiple prior drug trafficking convictions.

Wilson, 39, of Antioch, was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 19, 2013, for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The sentence was handed down by the Honorable Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, U.S. District Judge, following a guilty plea on one count in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(a)(1).  Judge Gonzalez Rogers also sentenced the defendant to a five-year period of supervised release and ordered Wilson to forfeit the $14,969 in drug trafficking proceeds in his possession at the time of his arrest as well as his Chevrolet pick-up truck.  Wilson has been in custody since his arrest in October 2013 and will begin serving the sentence immediately.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Garth Hire is prosecuting the case with the assistance of Melissa Dorton.  The prosecution is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Antioch Police Department.
