Georgia Man Sentenced to Prison for His Role in a Three-Year Drug Conspiracy

A Georgia resident was sentenced today for his role in a three-year drug conspiracy. Thomaas “30” Redding, 21, of Macon, Georgia, was sentenced to 69 months in prison. Redding previously pleaded guilty in April 2010, admitting he conspired with other dealers to distribute five grams or more of cocaine base in and around the Huntington, West Virginia area. A federal investigation revealed that from 2006 through 2009, Redding and several others participated in a drug conspiracy responsible for distributing quantities of crack cocaine. According to court documents, during this time Redding sold cocaine base and shared in profits made by the conspiracy.

The investigation was conducted by the Huntington Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, Huntington Police Department, West Virginia State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Lawrence County (Ohio) Drug Task Force, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, Cabell County Sheriff’s Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers presided over the proceedings.
