Chunchula Man Sentenced to Twelve Years in Methamphetamine Case
MOBILE, AL – A Chunchula man was sentenced today to 144 months in prison for his participation in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
According to court documents, Freddy Paul Foreman, Jr., 38, was identified during an investigation which resulted from controlled purchases of methamphetamine ice from Foreman at his home in Baldwin County, Alabama. Baldwin County sheriff’s deputies obtained a search warrant for the premises and executed it. A co-defendant in the case told deputies that they were awaiting a shipment of drugs at the residence but it had not yet arrived. Deputies seized cell phones, drug paraphernalia and cash, including some of the marked money used to make the controlled purchases of drugs prior to the execution of the search warrant. At the time of his arrest, Foreman was on supervised release from a prior federal conviction for possession of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking felony. His ongoing criminal activity resulted in a petition filed by the United States Probation Office seeking revocation of the five-year supervised release term and his remand to federal prison.
United States District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade imposed the 144-month sentence, consisting of 84 months on the drug conspiracy, and 60 months for the violation of the supervised release conditions, with the sentences to run consecutively. No fine was imposed, but Foreman was ordered to pay a special mandatory assessment of $100. A five-year term of supervised release was again imposed, to begin when Foreman is released from prison.
The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Safe Streets Task Force, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria Bedwell prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.
