Armed Drug Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Alex White, 31, of Mobile, was sentenced today on charges involving drug distribution and using a gun during and in relation to his drug trafficking activities.  White pled guilty to the charges in October of 2015.

Judge Kristi K. Dubose imposed a sentence of 90 months in White’s case, consisting of 84 months on the gun charge (a statutory mandatory sentence) followed by 6 months on the drug charge.  She also ordered that White will undergo drug abuse counseling and treatment while he serves his time, and when he comes out of prison, he will continue such counseling and treatment as conditions of his five year term of supervised release.  No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that White pay $200 in special mandatory assessments.

The case was investigated by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
