Description: Frankfort, KY - Frankfort Man Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine and a Firearm Offense

Jonathan L. Courtland, 35, of Frankfort, pleaded on January 8, 2018 to Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine and being a Convicted Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

In his guilty plea, Courtland admitted that he had engaged in several instances of cocaine distribution in Frankfort, Kentucky, between December 2016 and April 2017. He also admitted that, on April 24, 2017, he possessed a handgun, even though he had previously been convicted of one or more felony drug offenses.

Federal Bureau of Investigation, Kentucky State Police, and Frankfort Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Roger W. West represented the United States in the case. The case is part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, a Department of Justice initiative to reduce violent crime through partnerships between federal, state, and local law enforcement. The goal of the PSN Program is to use these partnerships to make communities safer.

Courtland faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years (180 months) on the firearms offense and a maximum prison sentence of 30 years on the cocaine offense. However, the Court will impose any sentence after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the applicable federal statutes.
