Tennessee Drug Trafficker Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

NOV 18 (GREENVILLE, Tenn.) – George Mooneyham, 57, of Cosby, Tennessee was sentenced on November 16, 2016, by the Honorable J. Ronnie Greer, U.S. District Court Judge, to serve 120 months in federal prison. 

In July 2016, Mooneyham pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute marijuana.  At the time of the investigation into his distribution of marijuana, Mooneyham was already under the supervision of a federal probation officer, following service of a prison sentence for his 2004 conviction for distribution of cocaine in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee.  Mooneyham’s participation in new criminal activity was a violation of the terms of his supervised release.  The court sentenced Mooneyham to 60 months for the marijuana distribution conviction and to a consecutive 60 months for violation of the terms of his supervised release for a net effective sentence of 120 months. 

Agencies involved in this investigation included the Cocke County Sheriff’s Office, Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshal Service, and U.S. Probation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney, J. Gregory Bowman, represented the United States.
