Armed Drug Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Jerome Megaile Henry, 24, of Mobile, was sentenced in federal court this morning on drug and gun charges.  In August of 2016, Henry pled guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and one count of using, carrying, and possessing a firearm in furtherance of and in relation to a drug trafficking felony.

United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed a sentence of one month on the drug count, and 60 months on the gun count, and ordered that they run consecutively. Judge Steele also ordered that Henry will commence a five-year term of supervised release when he is discharged from incarceration.  As conditions of his supervision, Henry will be subject to testing and treatment for drug abuse.  Judge Steele also ordered that Henry pay $200 in special mandatory assessments and he ordered the forfeiture of the firearm used in the commission of the offenses. 

The case was investigated by the Mobile Police Department 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.
