Description: Covington, KY - Florence Man Sentenced to Life in Prison For Conspiring to Distribute Methamphetamine

James Allen Eapmon, 31, of Florence, Ky., was sentenced to life in prison on February 23, 2018, by United States District Judge David Bunning, for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Eapmon led a conspiracy responsible for distributing between 1.5 and 4.4 kilograms of methamphetamine, between January 1, 2016 and October 4, 2016. The Defendant led the group, regularly distributed crystal methamphetamine, and supplied it to other members of the conspiracy for distribution. Three other individuals, Chance Haley, Matthew Clem, and Charles “Bub” Eapmon, have also been convicted in connection with this investigation. Eapmon has five prior felony convictions, including previous convictions for burglary and drug trafficking.

Under federal law, Eapmon will not be eligible for parole.

“The Defendant’s criminal conduct, both past and current, has resulted in a very significant penalty,” said Robert M. Duncan, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky. “The Defendant’s sentence should serve as a warning to career criminals who sell drugs in our communities – your criminal actions may result in you permanently forfeiting your liberty.”

United States Attorney Duncan and Christopher Evans, Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration, jointly announced the sentence.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force conducted the investigation.

Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to life in prison.
