CAREER OFFENDER IS SENTENCED TO 15 YEARS IN PRISON ON DRUG CHARGES
On January 7, 2020 Keyon Miller, 29, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on drug charges in Charlotte, NC.
In addition to the prison term imposed, Miller was ordered to serve three years under court supervision upon completion of his prison term.
From at least November 2018 to December 2018, Miller was trafficking narcotics in Statesville, NC and surrounding areas. Over the course of the investigation, Miller sold crack cocaine and firearms – including two SKS type rifles – to an individual working with law enforcement.
On October 7, 2019, Miller pleaded guilty to distribution and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.
Miller’s sentence was enhanced because of his prior felony convictions, which include Common Law Robbery and Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon, all of which classified Miller as a career offender under the United States Sentencing Guidelines.
Miller is currently in custody. He will be ordered to report to the federal Bureau of Prisons to begin serving his sentence, upon designation of a federal facility.
All federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole.
