For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Alabama

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Thomas Clifford Johnston, 36, of Saraland, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court for his participation in the possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.  He pled guilty to the charge in October of 2018. 

United States District Court Judge Callie V. S. Granade imposed a sentence of 60 months imprisonment, to be followed by four years of supervised release.  The judge imposed standard conditions of supervision on record with the court for Johnston’s supervised release term, but added a special condition that he be tested and treated for drug and alcohol abuse.  No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Johnston pay the $100 mandatory special assessment. 

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