Chon Huffman, 35, of Miami has pleaded guilty in Ottawa County District Court to conspiracy to commit the crime of trafficking methamphetamine.
MIAMI – A member of a methamphetamine drug ring pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a four-year prison term, a prosecutor said Friday.
Chon Huffman, 35, of Miami plead guilty in Ottawa County District Court on June 14 to conspiracy to commit the crime of trafficking methamphetamine, said Randall Yates, assistant district attorney.
The other two charges – possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and racketeering were dismissed, he said.
Huffman’s full sentence is four years in the Department of Corrections and a six-year suspended sentence where he will be on probation, Yates said.
Of the 28 defendants known as the “Slint Tate Drug Ring,” 13 individuals have received suspended sentences, are in custody of the Department of Corrections, federal custody, probation or charges were dismissed.
District Attorney Kenny Wright said at the time when most of the drug ring defendants were arrested the methamphetamine sales had a street value of approximately $250,000 to $1 million.
Authorities allege that Slint Tate, 34, is calling all the shots behind bars at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary with a contraband cellphone. He has not been charged but is serving a life sentence for the 1999 shooting death of Vernie Milford Roberts, a Delaware County reserve deputy.
Tate was 16 when he fatally shot Roberts.
