From U.S. Attorney
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
BOWLING GREEN, KY - (Wed 7 Feb 2018) - The last defendant in a methamphetamine conspiracy operating out of Barren County, Kentucky, was sentenced in United States District Court this week, by United States District Judge Greg N. Stivers, to 60 months in prison for the sale of 6.5 kilograms of methamphetamine announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman. There is no parole in the federal system.
"Meth and those who trade in that poison are no respecter of lives." stated U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman. "Incarcerating its dealers and diminishing its supply are critical to protecting Western Kentucky families and our Commonwealth."
Andrea Parks, 37, of Robertson County, Tennessee, was charged by grand jury indictment with co-defendants Teresa Lynn Jackson, 47, Danny Ray Delplane, 46, and Christopher Lynn Thomason, 47, from Glasgow, Kentucky, and Eddie Joe Simpson, 47, of Bowling Green, Kentucky. The defendants were charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of meth.
According to information presented in court, Parks supplied nearly 11 pounds of meth to Jackson, for distribution in Barren County. Specifically, between May 1, 2015, and October 29, 2015, Jackson would travel to Tennessee to receive meth from Parks, then distribute it to Thomason, Delplane, and Simpson. During that time period, law enforcement made five recorded controlled buys from Jackson. During this time period, Parks directly supplied Jackson with 1.5 and 5 kilograms of meth.
Further, Jackson was charged as being a convicted felon in possession of firearms. She was sentenced to 156 months in prison followed by a five year term of supervised release. Thomason was sentenced to 57 months in prison, Delplane was sentenced to 33 months in prison, and Simpson was sentenced to 46 months in prison. All were sentenced in United States District Court in Bowling Green, by District Judge Stivers.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mac Shannon and was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
