TUSCALOOSA MAN SENTENCED TO MORE THAN 21 YEARS IN PRISON ON GUN AND DRUG CHARGES

A Tuscaloosa man was sentenced to 262 months in prison last Thursday for a bevy of drug and firearm charges.

U.S. District Court Judge Annemarie Axon sentenced Seth Williams, 27, to over 21 years of confinement for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, use of a firearm during a drug offense and felon in possession of a firearm. Williams, who has an extensive record, pled guilty to the charges in June 2019.

“Society needs protection from this dangerous class of repeat offenders, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners are providing it,” U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town said in a press release. “Williams will spend the next 262 months in a federal prison bed with no sanctuary of parole.”

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case along with the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Simpson and John Camp prosecuted.
