A federal judge sentenced Houston James David Green, a 24-year-old from Chunchula, to 10 years in prison for drug and gun charges in Mobile County, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Justice.
Green entered a guilty plea to two charges including conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and carrying a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking felony. Green received a 10-year sentence after the judge ruled the likelihood for Green to commit similar charges was high after reviewing the facts of the case. U.S. District Court Judge Kristi Dubose oversaw the case.
According to court documents, Green was arrested three times in a four-month span. During each arrest, officers found Green in possession of methamphetamine ice, cash and guns.
The 10-year sentence contains five years for the gun charge and five years for the drug charge. Judge Dubose also ruled that Green will be under a supervision for five years after his release from prison. The supervision will include drug testing and fines.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria Bedwell oversaw the case for the Justice Department. During the investigation into his arrest, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Saraland Police Department, the Citronelle Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security Investigations.
