Convicted Felon From Tarrant County Sentenced To 300 Months In Federal Prison On Methamphetamine Distribution Conspiracy Conviction
FORT WORTH, Texas - A convicted felon from Tarrant County who pleaded guilty this summer to his role in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Fort Worth, Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.
Jerry Curry, 47, of Haltom City, Texas, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Reed C. O’Connor to 300 (25 years) in federal prison. Curry pleaded guilty in July 2015 to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. He has been in federal custody since his arrest in June 2015 on an indictment that charged him and 27 others with various offenses stemming from their roles in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy. Most of the defendants have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
According to documents filed in the case, since approximately 2014, Curry and other co-defendants received ounce and multi-ounce quantities of methamphetamine on consignment from a supplier co-defendant. In turn, Curry and the others distributed methamphetamine to various customers in the Fort Worth area, returning to this supplier for additional methamphetamine.
The Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Smith prosecuted.
