Jamie Shantez McNeail Sentenced Following Guilty Plea to a Federal Drug Conspiracy Charge

     Acting United States Attorney Steve Butler of the Southern District of Alabama announces today that Jamie Shantez McNeail of Mobile was sentenced to 37 months imprisonment. McNeail’s sentencing followed entry of a January 2017 guilty plea to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine.
     McNeail’s guilty plea included his admission that between June 9 and July 1, 2016, he participated in numerous instances in which he conspired to distribute one (1) and two (2) ounce quantities of cocaine. McNeail was held responsible for the distribution of a quantity of cocaine between 400 and 500 grams.
     Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance is a violation of Title 21, United States Code Section 846. McNeail’s imprisonment will be followed by a three year term of supervised release.
     This case arose from a long-term investigation in the Daphne/Fairhope area conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Street Task Force. This investigation has previously resulted in the indictment of six (6) other defendants on federal drug conspiracy charges. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Alabama.
