Fayette County Man serving 20 years for meth distribution

Trial Gavel Sentence

A Fayette County man will serve 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to selling methamphetamine last June.

24th Judicial Circuit District Attorney Andy Hamlin announced the news Monday.

Demetrus Deundra Walker, 42, is a five-time convicted felon who was on probation from a 2010 case when he was arrested on the methamphetamine charges.

“Mr. Walker was given several chances, yet he still chose to sell dangerous drugs in the Fayette community,” Hamlin said. “He was aware of the possible consequences when he chose to re-offend, and now he has to face them.”

Walker’s arrest was the result of an investigation conducted by investigators with the District Attorney’s Office and the Fayette Sheriff’s Department. The investigation yielded multiple incidences in which Walker distributed drugs while in Fayette County.

He pleaded guilty to distribution of a controlled substance at a hearing held in Fayette County Circuit Court on Oct. 18.

“It is a common refrain in society these days to give criminals second chances. He was given that and more. It’s time he paid the piper,” Hamlin said.
