Meth Cook Sentenced In Federal Court

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Ronald Shane Chestang, 31, of Axis, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court this morning for his participation in two conspiracies—to manufacture methamphetamine, and to purchase pseudoephedrine, a List I chemical, to be used in methamphetamine manufacturing. Chestang pled guilty to the two charges in 2013.

United States District Court Judge Kristi K. Dubose imposed a sentence of time served, which amounted to approximately 64 months that Chestang has been in custody. Chestang was also credited with time served in related state charges from Texas. The judge ordered that Chestang will commence a six-year term of supervised release immediately, which will include 90 days inpatient drug treatment. As conditions of his supervision, Chestang will be subject to testing and treatment for drug abuse. Judge Dubose also ordered that Chestang pay $200 in special mandatory assessments.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
