GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A South Carolina man has been sentenced to almost 20 years in federal prison after pleading guilty in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, launder money and possess firearms in connection with trafficking.
The U.S. attorney’s office in East Tennessee said 49-year-old Leonard Wayne Mullinax, of Gaffney, was sentenced Monday to 19 years and seven months. Prosecutors said Gaffney said he had supplied 48-year-old co-defendant Edward Walters of Surgoinsville, Tennessee, with more than eight pounds of methamphetamine for about a year. Walters is awaiting sentencing.
Six others from Tennessee and South Carolina were previously sentenced to terms ranging from 10 years to about 16 1/2 years.
