From the U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, KY - (Tue 01 Aug 2017) United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr. today announced the sentencing of a former Bullitt County, Kentucky, Special Sheriff's Deputy, to 36 months in prison, followed by a five year period of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine, by United States District Judge David J. Hale, for trafficking in marijuana and methamphetamine and concealing the financial proceeds (money laundering). Two co-defendants admitted to concealing the criminal activities from law enforcement during a 15 month period.
Christopher A. Mattingly, 40, of Shepherdsville, Kentucky, admitted that between March 2014 and June 2015, he conspired with other named defendants to knowingly and intentionally distributing more than 1000 kilograms but less than 3000 kilograms of marijuana imported from California and distributed in the Western District of Kentucky and elsewhere. At trial, the United States would have proved these facts by introducing recordings of conversations between the defendant and a co-conspirator, and between the defendant and a reliable confidential informant, wherein the defendant makes statements probative of knowledge and intent to distribute large quantities of marijuana.
Additionally, Mattingly admitted that between March 2014 and June 2015, he conspired with the other named defendants to conduct financial transactions with monetary proceeds derived from trafficking in marijuana, by depositing some proceeds in the bank and by using other proceeds to pay for marijuana shipments. The United States would have proven these facts by introducing the defendant's bank records and eliciting testimony from a reliable confidential informant.
Finally, Mattingly admitted that between February 2015 and June 2015, he conspired with other persons to knowingly and intentionally distributing more than 500 grams but less than 1.5 kilograms of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine. The United States would have proven these facts by eliciting testimony from unindicted co-conspirators and from a reliable confidential informant.
Ronald A. Shewmaker and Eddie Whitfill, both from Bullitt County, previously admitted to concealing their knowledge of Mattingly's illegal activities from law enforcement between March 2014 and June 2015. They were sentenced to probation. Co-defendants Hector Renato Orozco Landa and Raymond Carillo remain at large. Both are charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana and money laundering.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Larry E. Fentress and was investigated by DEA and the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department.
