Foley Man Sentenced on Drug and Gun Charges

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Daren Lewis Doffee, 36, of Foley, Alabama, was sentenced on July 27, 2018, to 70 months imprisonment for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and using, carrying or possessing a firearm in furtherance of or in relation to a drug trafficking felony.  Court documents show that Doffee was the driver of a vehicle stopped by Foley police for a traffic violation on County Road 12.  Doffee told the officer that he had a gun in the vehicle, and the officer found a loaded .9mm pistol with two extra magazines in the center console.  In the investigation that followed, the officers found methamphetamine, a scale, notes which appeared to represent records of prior drugs sales, and $1,810 in cash.  Doffee was indicted on the federal charges in November of 2017, and he pled guilty in March of 2018. 

United States District Court Judge Kristi K. Dubose sentenced Doffee to 70 months’ imprisonment, consisting of 60 months on the gun charge, with an additional 10 months on the drug charge, to run consecutively.   When Doffee is released from imprisonment, he will serve six years of supervised release, during which he will undergo drug and alcohol abuse treatment.  Doffee was also ordered to pay $200 in mandatory special assessments, but no fine was imposed. 

The case was investigated by the Foley Police Department, the Daphne Police Department, and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United Sates Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
