U.S. DISTRICT COURT, SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS—A St. Louis man, convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine, was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison on March 6, 2015, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced yesterday.

Eric Watson, 28, of St. Louis, Missouri, received a 57-month sentence for offenses which occurred in St. Clair County, Illinois and in St. Louis, Missouri. Watson had previously pled guilty to those offenses. Following release from imprisonment, Watson will serve a 3 year term of supervised release. Watson was also ordered to pay a $500 fine and a $100 special assessment.

Evidence in support of this prosecution was obtained in an investigation which was conducted under the auspices of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF). The OCDETF initiative is designed to bring federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and resources together to identify, target and dismantle large national and international drug trafficking organizations.

Agencies participating in this case include the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigations, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and United States Marshals Service. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Donald S. Boyce.
