Duane (DAK) Kees, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Jermaine Donald, age 35, was sentenced today to 120 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for one count of Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. The Honorable Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville.
According to court records, in 2018, detectives received information that Donald was distributing methamphetamine in the northwest Arkansas area. On three separate occasions, detectives set up a controlled purchase of methamphetamine from Donald. Upon executing a search warrant of Donald’s residence, detectives located $8,790.00 in U.S. currency, cocaine, crack cocaine, digital scales, and 336 grams of actual methamphetamine.
Donald was indicted by a federal grand jury in December 2018, and he entered a guilty plea in March 2019.
This case was investigated by the 4th Judicial Drug Task Force and the DEA. Assistant United States Attorney David A. Harris prosecuted the case for the United States.
