Sparta man receives 158-month sentence for meth trafficking

Spartalive.com reports that David Allen Pecor of Sparta, Tennessee, was sentenced to more than 13 years for his role in a meth trafficking ring that moved large quantities of methamphetamine from Georgia to White and Putnam Counties.

While small time dealers and producers are normally indicted in State court, Pecor was indicted in federal court, indicating that the feds believed Pecor was further up the food chain than your typical drug dealer.  The feds charged him with violations of 21 U.S.C. § 841(A)(1) (Possession with Intent to Distribute 50 Grams or More of Methamphetamine), 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1) (Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime), and 21 U.S.C. § 846 (Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute 500 Grams or more of Mixtures and Substances Containing a Detectable Amount of Methamphetamine.
