PLANO, Texas - A North Texas man and woman have been
sentenced for federal violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced
Acting U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston today.
Amanda Lynn Mollison, 29, of Allen,
Texas, pleaded guilty on May 3, 2017 to providing contraband in prison.
Justin Chadwick Brown, 39, of Grand Prairie, Texas, pleaded guilty on May 4,
2017, to possession of contraband in prison. Mollison and Brown were each
sentenced to 51 months in federal prison last week by U.S. District Judge
Marcia A. Crone.
According to information presented in court, on Oct. 11, 2016, Mollison sent
Brown a greeting card soaked in methamphetamine through the mail to the Collin
County Jail where Brown was incarcerated. Officials with the Collin County
Sheriff’s Office tested the greeting card which tested positive for the
presence of methamphetamine. Investigators then searched for phone calls
between inmate Brown and Mollison that had been recorded. Investigators
learned that between Sep. 30, 2016 and Oct. 5, 2016, Brown requested that
Mollison send him the greeting card containing methamphetamine. Mollison
and Brown were indicted by a federal grand jury on Feb. 9, 2017.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Collin
County Sheriff’s Office and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracey M. Batson.
