From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Eastern District of Kentucky
LEXINGTON, KY - (Tue 5 Dec 2016) Travis B. Preston, 28, and Tiffany L. Griffith, 25, both of Stanford, KY, pleaded guilty today to conspiring to distribute large quantities of fentanyl.
Preston admitted to conspiring to distribute 40 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of fentanyl. Griffith admitted to aiding and abetting the distribution of 40 grams or more of fentanyl.
In the course of their guilty pleas, Preston and Griffith admitted possessing approximately 121 grams of fentanyl. The fentanyl was discovered in Griffith's purse, during a traffic stop that occurred on April 5, 2016, in Lancaster. Fentanyl can be lethal in the two milligram range.
Kerry B. Harvey, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Timothy J. Plancon, Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration; Richard W. Sanders, Commissioner, Kentucky State Police; and Tim Davis, Garrard County Sheriff, jointly made the announcement.
The investigation was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Kentucky State Police, and the Garrard County Sheriff's Office. The United States was represented in the case by Assistant United States Attorney Robert M. Duncan, Jr.
Preston and Griffith are currently scheduled to appear for sentencing before United States Senior District Judge Joseph M. Hood on March 6,2017. Because of a prior felony drug conviction, Preston faces a minimum sentence of imprisonment of 10 years, and maximum sentence of Life imprisonment. Griffith faces a mandatory minimum sentence of not less than 5 years and not more than 40 years imprisonment. However, any sentence imposed by the court would come after consideration of the United States Sentencing Guidelines and the applicable federal statutes.
