Meth trafficker sentenced to 20 years
A man convicted last month of transporting about 6 pounds of methamphetamine into Bay County last year has been sentenced to 20 years in prison, State Attorney Larry Basford announced Friday.
Jerry Ray Walker, of Carrollton, Ga., was found guilty of trafficking
amphetamine (200 grams or more) June 29 and sentenced Friday by Circuit Court Judge Timothy Register. The first 15 years of the sentence are minimum/mandatory.
Walker, who was driving, and the co-defendant were stopped by investigators on March 9. A drug-detecting K9 alerted on the vehicle, which led to the discovery of the drugs in a duffle bag.
