In a federal drug case, Judge William H. Steele imposed a sentence of 121 months imprisonment on Michael Lamar Sweat, 38, of Wilmer, who was convicted of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of a List I chemical with knowledge it would be used to manufacture a controlled substance.  Sweat was found guilty of the two charges by a federal jury in June of 2014.  Judge Steele ordered that the sentences run concurrently on the two counts.  In addition, the judge ordered that Sweat would serve three years’ supervised release after he comes out of prison, and that Sweat pay $200 in special mandatory assessments.  The judge further ordered that Sweat undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse during his supervision.  No fine was imposed.

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