Friday, May 9, 2008

Timothy M. Morrison, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, announced that Terri Sawyer, 41, Cloverdale, was sentenced to 260 months' imprisonment, Friday, by U.S. District Judge Larry J. McKinney following her conviction at trial for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

This case was the result of a nine-month investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Metro Drug Task Force, Beech Grove Police Department, Indianapolis Police Department, Marion County Sheriff's Department, Vigo County Drug Task Force and Clay County Sheriff's Department.

Sawyer was a distributor for a methamphetamine trafficking cell that worked along the I-70 corridor running from Indianapolis to Terre Haute.

The methamphetamine trafficking cell distributed more than 40 pounds of methamphetamine per month from May 2005 through January 2006.

Sawyer distributed her methamphetamine in the Cloverdale, Mansfield and Terre Haute areas.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Bradley A. Blackington, who prosecuted the case for the government, Judge McKinney also imposed five years supervised release following her release from imprisonment.

Sawyer will be subjected to random searches of her person, vehicle and residence during the period of supervised release.
