Faces at Least 10 Years in Prison
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Springfield, Missouri, man pleaded guilty in federal court today to his role in a conspiracy that distributed at least 15 kilograms of methamphetamine in a three-county area.
Jordan H. Williamson, 31, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool to participating in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
By pleading guilty today, Williams admitted that he participated in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Cass, Greene, and Miller counties from May 14, 2017, to June 20, 2018. Williamson received methamphetamine to distribute from co-conspirator Christina E. Gauger, 39, of Springfield.
According to today’s plea agreement, Gauger was obtaining at least one pound of methamphetamine for distribution every week of the conspiracy. Investigators seized approximately 2.5 kilograms of methamphetamine during the investigation.
Williamson is the fourth defendant to plead guilty in this case. Gauger and Robin L. Self, 37, of Springfield, have pleaded guilty and await sentencing. Jacob B. Piatchek, 26, of Springfield, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in federal prison without parole.
Under federal statutes, Williamson is subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison without parole, up to a sentence of life in federal prison without parole. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes, as the sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the court based on the advisory sentencing guidelines and other statutory factors. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the completion of a presentence investigation by the United States Probation Office.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Byron H. Black. It was investigated by the Springfield, Mo., Police Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Cass County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
