Five more defendants were sentenced after Operation Stateline Sweep charged 66 different defendants and handed out more than 190 counts in the indictment.  The sweep targeted drug trafficking activity in Arkansas.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas announced the most recent sentencing on November 2, 2012.  


Adrian Wither received 120 months in prison and three years of supervised release.  He pled guilty to selling crack cocaine to undercover agents on March 2, 2012.  


Cordney Morgan was sentenced to 42 months in prison and three years of supervised release after he used a firearm to help in drug trafficking.  A search warrant of Morgan’s residence turned up a semi-automatic pistol, digital scales, and packaged marijuana.  


Fredrick Law received 70 months in prison and four years of supervised release after pleading guilty to distributing 50 grams of methamphetamine.  A search warrant of his home found 58.3 grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.  


Marcel Johnson received 100 months in prison and three years of supervised release after he sold 12.13 grams of crack cocaine to undercover agents in Ozan, Arkansas.  


Alvin Weekly was sentenced to 140 months in prison and six years of supervised release after he sold crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of a public school.  He sold 11.5 grams of crack cocaine every week during the investigation by the FBI.  


Two more men pleaded guilty to charges around the time the five other defendants were sentenced.  Chadwick Williams pleaded guilty to selling 280 grams of crack cocaine.  A search warrant of his residence found 133.5 grams of cocaine, 27.8654 grams of crack cocaine, manufacturing equipment, and more.  Patrick Cornelius pled guilty to distributing over 28 grams of crack cocaine.  


United State Attorney Conner Eldridge announced, “Large-scale operations like this require persistence, and this office will continue to ensure that each and every defendant involved in the drug trafficking activity in this case is held responsible for his or her actions.”
