Description: Brunswick, Georgia drug distribution charge criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant, Demetrius Brown, a/k/a Jersey, age 43, from Douglas, Georgia, who was charged for istribution of methamphetamine.

Defendant was accused of Distribution of a Mixture or Substance Containing a Detectable Amount of Methamphetamine, said David H. Estes, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia. U.S. District Court Judge Lisa Godbey Wood also ordered Brown to serve three years of supervised release after completion of his prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

“Meth is poison, and those who would seek to profit from distributing it in our neighborhoods will be held accountable,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Estes. “Our law enforcement partners, particularly the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, have made their community a safer place by taking Demetrius Brown off the streets.”

The investigation of Brown began in 2019 when the Coffee County Drug Unit determined Brown was selling pills purportedly containing ecstasy. Law enforcement conducted two controlled purchases before executing a search warrant at Brown’s home, discovering pills labeled “Ecstasy” that contained methamphetamine, a pill press, other materials used for manufacturing methamphetamine pills, and four firearms.

Brown previously was convicted of multiple felonies, including assault on a law enforcement officer and heroin distribution in a school zone – all occurring in New Jersey prior to his relocation to south Georgia.

“We hope the sentence of Demetrius Brown will serve as a major wake-up call to those attempting to manufacture and distribute illegal drugs in Coffee County,” Sheriff Doyle Wooten stated. “We are actively partnering with state and federal officials and law enforcement agencies to aggressively target the sources of drug distribution in our area, and we will prosecute these cases to the fullest extent the law allows.”

“This case is the product of a collaborative effort on the part of ATF and Coffee County Sheriff’s Office to investigate the perpetrator of violent crime,” said Beau Kolodka, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Atlanta Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “This sentence will ensure the incarceration of a dangerous criminal.”

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office and the Coffee County Drug Unit, and prosecuted for the United States by Assistant U.S. Attorney John P. Harper III.

21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) Distribution of a Mixture or Substance Containing a Detectable Amount of Methamphetamine

Outcome: BOP 151 months concurrently to any sentenced imposed in related state charges in Coffee County / 3 years supervised release / Standard, special and mandatory conditions of release / no fine / $100 special assessment
