North Texas Man and Woman Sentenced for Meth Soaked Greeting Card
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.
