Jackson Man Sentenced To Prison For Possession With Intent To Distribute Cocaine

Jackson, Miss. – Aundra Mason, a/k/a Grey Head, 36, of Jackson, was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis and FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen announced today. Fifteen months of the sentence will run consecutively to a 135 month sentence for narcotics violations previously imposed in Texas.

The FBI led the investigation with assistance from DEA, U.S. Marshals Service, Gulf Coast HIDTA, Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, and the Jackson Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Erin Chalk.
