WICHITA FALLS, Texas — Doty Lee Standridge, 31, of Wichita Falls, Texas, was sentenced this week by U.S. District Judge Reed C. O’Connor to 110 months in federal prison following his guilty plea in June 2015 to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

Standridge’s co-defendant in the case, Joshua Antonio Ramirez, 30, of Lawton, Oklahoma, pleaded guilty last month to the same offense and is scheduled to be sentenced on January 4, 2016.  He faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a $1 million fine.

According to documents filed in the case, from approximately January 2013 until November 2014, Standridge obtained quantities of methamphetamine from suppliers, including Ramirez, and he distributed that methamphetamine in the Wichita Falls area and elsewhere. 

The quantities of methamphetamine that Standridge obtained and distributed varied.  He frequently obtained methamphetamine in one to two-ounce quantities and distributed one-eighth ounce (approximately 3.5 gram) and one-quarter ounce (approximately 7.0 gram) quantities. 

Texas DPS investigated.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Walters prosecuted.
