United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Carlos Walker, 43, of Newton, Mississippi, was sentenced on November 6, 2018, for his participation in the possession with intent to distribute two kilograms of cocaine. Walker pled guilty to the charge in June of 2017.
United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed a sentence of 24 months’ imprisonment, to be followed by four years of supervised release. The judge ordered that Walker undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse while in prison and during his supervised release. No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Walker pay $100 in special mandatory assessments.
The case was investigated by the Mobile Police Department, the Mobile County Street Enforcement Narcotics Team, 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 A. Bedwell.
