Henry County Man Sentenced to 17 Years in Federal Prison

Memphis, TN – Gary Osborne, 50, of Buchanan, Tennessee, has been sentenced to 210 months in federal 
prison for drug trafficking and firearms charges.  United States Attorney Kevin G. Ritz announced 
the sentence today.

According to the information presented in court, on August 15, 2018, members of the Metro Crime 
Unit, in Henry County, Tennessee, executed a search warrant at Osborne's residence. Officers 
located methamphetamine, digital scales, and more than $5200 in cash and a .243 rifle. As a result 
of his extensive felony history, Osborne is prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms and 

Osborne pled guilty to ownership of the narcotics and the rifle.

On January 17, 2023, United States Chief District Judge S. Thomas Anderson sentenced Osborne to 210 
months in federal prison to be followed by five years of supervised release. There is no parole in 
the federal system.

This case was investigated by the Henry County Sheriff’s Department, Paris Police Department, and 
the Puryear Police Department.

United States Attorney Kevin Ritz thanked Assistant United States Attorney Matt Wilson, who 
prosecuted this case, as well as law enforcement partners who investigated the case.
