Dallas Man Who Ran A Dallas Drug House Sentenced to 151 Months in Federal Prison

DALLAS — Michael Johnson, aka “Psych” and “Syke,” 34, of Dallas, Texas, was sentenced yesterday by Chief U.S. District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn to 151 months in federal prison following his guilty plea earlier this year to one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

A federal grand jury indicted Johnson and seventeen others in August 2016 on conspiracy drug trafficking charges. Johnson has been in custody since the time of his arrest in August 2016.

According to documents filed in the case, beginning in January 2015, Johnson supplied cocaine and marijuana to co-conspirators on several occasions in exchange for payment. During the conspiracy the defendants utilized North Texas residences to cut, package and distribute cocaine to numerous customers.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Phelesa Guy prosecuted.
