Meth Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Gary Ray Evans, Jr., 38, of Richton, Mississippi, was sentenced today to 151 months’ imprisonment following his plea of guilty on a federal charge of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine ice.  Evans was on supervised release from a prior federal drug conviction at the time of his arrest on the new charge.  Court documents reflect that Evans was discovered in a hotel room in Mobile with approximately 24 grams of methamphetamine ice.  Evans pled guilty to the new charge in June of 2016.

United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed the 151 month sentence, and ordered that Evans undergo drug treatment and counseling while on a three-year-term of supervised release, which will commence when he is released from his prison sentence.  Judge Steele also ordered that Evans pay  a $100 special mandatory assessments, but did not impose a fine.

The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security Investigations worked the case.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
