Oakdale Man In Prison For Meth Charges

Posted: Updated:

LAKE CHARLES, La. - Thomas Dwain Tilton, Jr., 51, of Oakdale, La., was sentenced Thursday to 87 months in prison and three years supervised release for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi because of Tilton's guilty plea in February.

According to the United States Attorney, Tilton and two others were indicted on drug charges in May 2011 as a result of a joint Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation conducted by federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.

Tilton's co-defendants admitted to trafficking in methamphetamine for several years and said that Tilton was one of their suppliers.

During his guilty plea, Tilton admitted that his methamphetamine source in East Texas possessed and distributed to him and others more than 500 grams of methamphetamine. Both of Tilton's co-defendants previously pled guilty to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Kimberly Ann Thompson pled guilty in March, and was sentenced in July to 10 years in prison and five years of supervised release. Harlis Ramsey Martin pled guilty in March and was sentenced on June 14 to 140 months in prison and five years of supervised release.
