Press release


MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Gregory Martin Williams, age 57, of Muldrow, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 70 months imprisonment and 3 years supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine.

 

The charge arose from an investigation by the District 27 District Attorney’s Drug Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

The Indictment alleged that on or about August 30, 2016, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

 

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Rural Oklahoma is no stranger to the devastating impact that Methamphetamine has on people, families and communities. The dealers of this deadly poison must be held accountable. Thanks to the District 27 Drug and Violent Crime Task Force and the DEA, prosecutors in this office successfully prosecuted Williams.”

 

District Attorney Jack Thorp added, “Cooperation between federal, state, and local agencies continue to provide excellent results in the administration of justice. I am thankful for the strong working relationships that we have with our federal partners as we work together to make Eastern Oklahoma safer. This investigation and prosecution is a great example of what we can accomplish when we work together.”

 

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Christopher Wilson represented the United States.

 

The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
