"Spice" Conspirator Sentenced In Federal Court

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

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Irvin Louis Kendrick, 51, of Prichard, Alabama, was sentenced in federal court today for his role in a conspiracy to distribute synthetic marijuana, or "spice," and a conspiracy to launder drug money. Kendrick pled guilty to the charges in April of 2015.

United States District Court Judge Callie V. S. Granade imposed a sentence of 64 months in Kendrick’s cases, and ordered that the sentences run concurrently with each other. She ordered that when he is released from his prison sentence, Kendrick will serve three years of supervised release on each case, to run concurrently. The judge imposed $200 in mandatory special assessments, but did not order a fine. As a condition of his supervision, the judge ordered that Kendrick will be monitored for drug and alcohol abuse.

The case was investigated by 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 Bedwell.
