Meth Distributor Sentenced in Federal Court

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Lasieka Juwanne Lee, 32, of Pensacola, Florida, was sentenced on the charge of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine on August 9, 2019, in federal court in Mobile.  Lee pled guilty to the charges in January of 2019.

United States District Court Judge Kristi Dubose imposed the statutory minimum mandatory sentence of 60 months for Lee’s involvement with the distribution of approximately 91 grams of methamphetamine.  The judge ordered that Lee be placed on four years of supervised release when she completes her term of imprisonment.  Lee will undergo treatment and testing for drug abuse while she is imprisoned and under supervised release.  No fine was imposed, but Lee was ordered to pay the mandatory special assessment of $100.

The case was investigated by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria A. Bedwell.
