McDowell Co. Man Sentenced To More Than 14 Years On Drug Charges

Department Of Justice
Press Release

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – U.S. Attorney Andrew Murray announced Nov. 19, 2020 that Jonathan Brooks Floyd, 43, of Marion, N.C. was sentenced to 178 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. U.S. District Judge Martin Reidinger also sentenced Floyd to five years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term.

According to today’s sentencing hearing and documents filed with the Court, in November 2019, law enforcement became aware that Floyd was trafficking methamphetamine. During a subsequent search at Floyd’s residence, law enforcement discovered more than 625 grams of methamphetamine and five firearms. Floyd pleaded guilty to the drug charge on June 1, 2020. Floyd’s previous convictions in North Carolina, including a Habitual Felon conviction, contributed to the Court’s prison sentence.

Floyd is currently in custody and will be transferred to the custody of the federal Bureau of Prisons to begin serving his sentence upon designation of a federal facility.

In making today’s announcement, U.S. Attorney Murray thanks the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office, and the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office for their investigation of this case.

Assistant United States Attorney John Pritchard of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Asheville prosecuted the case.
