MONROE, La. – Darryl Andrea Williams, 59, of Monroe, Louisiana was sentenced yesterday by United States District Judge Terry A. Doughty to 144 months (12 years) in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, announced United States Attorney Brandon B. Brown.

An investigation by agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) determined that between October 2018 and March 2020, Williams conspired with others to possess with intent to distribute at least 150 grams but not less than 500 grams of methamphetamine. The organization that Williams was a part of would arrange for methamphetamine to be sent to Monroe area via couriers, sending approximately 1-1.5 kilos of methamphetamine at a time. Once in Monroe, Williams would then pick up the narcotics from the couriers and take it to one of his co-conspirators who would break it up and then give it to Williams with instructions on where to deliver it.  Law enforcement agents were able to get approval for a wiretap on Williams’ phone and intercepted numerous phone calls wherein they discussed the sale and purchase of the narcotics.

This case was investigated by the DEA and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brian C. Flanagan and J. Aaron Crawford.
