Lincoln Man Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that on October 4, 2018, Bryant Omonttez Williams, 38 of Lincoln, was sentenced to 21 years and 10 months (262 months) in prison for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine mixture and 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine between July of 2016 and September of 2017.  Following the prison term, Williams will serve five years on supervised release.

Information provided to law enforcement indicated that Williams was responsible for the distribution of at least 1.5 kilograms (approximately three pounds) of methamphetamine mixture and at least 150 grams (over five ounces) of actual/pure methamphetamine.  In January of 2017, Williams was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by the Lincoln Police Department.  When Williams got out of the vehicle, he threw a baggie containing approximately three grams of methamphetamine on the ground and tried to spread it over the pavement with his foot.  In March of 2017, officers saw Williams engaged in what appeared to be a drug transaction.  He ran when officers tried to contact him but left a baggie containing approximately three grams of methamphetamine on the seat of the car he had been driving.  In August of 2017, Williams’s co-defendant, Nicole Kemp, was arrested for driving on a suspended license.  Her car was searched. A safe containing 528 grams of methamphetamine mixture, including at least 460 grams of actual methamphetamine, was found in the car.  Kemp said the safe belonged to Williams and said she did not know there were drugs in her car.  In September of 2017, Williams sold methamphetamine twice to a confidential informant for a total of approximately seven grams and was found in possession of an additional three grams.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
