Oxford, MS – A Starkville man was sentenced today to 15 years in prison for drug trafficking.

According to court documents, Chad Boyd, aka Chadrick Robinson, 41, previously pled guilty to distribution of 50 grams or more of methamphetamine (actual), also known as “ice,” a Schedule II controlled substance. Boyd was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills to 180 months in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release. Boyd was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals following his sentencing hearing.

“Individuals who chose to spend their time selling meth and other illegal drugs in the Northern District of Mississippi should know that this office and our law enforcement partners will do all we can to see that they are removed from the community and sent to prison,” remarked U.S. Attorney Clay Joyner. “We hope that today’s sentence will serve as another reminder that the sale of illegal narcotics has detrimental and life-changing consequences for those who peddle the illicit substances and those who use them.”

“The sentencing of Mr. Chad Boyd, for the distribution of methamphetamine, underscores the positive impacts law enforcement has on the communities affected by the drug crisis,” said FBI SAC Robert A. Eikhoff. “Criminals like Mr. Boyd can expect the FBI and our federal, state, and local partners to remain steadfast in our resolve to remove offenders from the communities where they would otherwise bring the violence and the criminal activity inextricably linked to illegal drugs.”

This case was investigated by the FBI and the Starkville Police Department. The case was prosecuted by AUSA Robert Mims.
