Drug Importer Sentenced In Federal Court

Adrian Alexusia Benson, 37, of Daphne, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court this morning for his illegal importation of controlled substances.  In May of 2014, Benson had pled guilty to the importation of Ketamine, a Schedule III controlled substance, and to attempting to import Anabolic Steriods and Xanax, Schedule III and IV controlled substances respectively.

United States District Court Judge William H. Steele ordered that Benson serve three years probation for the offenses.  The judge also ordered that Benson undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse while he is on probation, and required that Benson pay $300 in special mandatory assessments.

The case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the United States Postal Inspectors.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney's Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
