U.S. District Judge Wendy W. Berger has sentenced Danny Wayne Holmes, 62, Kathleen, to 15 years and 8 months in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

On June 14, 2022, Judge Berger sentenced codefendant Robert Wayne Watson, 59, Seville, to 9 years in federal prison. Holmes had pleaded guilty on February 23, 2022, and Watson had pleaded guilty on March 29, 2022. 

According to court documents, Holmes and Watson were part of a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine from a distribution hub in Crescent City, through Watson’s home in Seville, to points throughout central Florida, including Holmes’s location in Kathleen.

Watson served as the primary conduit for methamphetamine from Crescent City to street-level dealers. Further, Holmes obstructed justice by absconding while on pretrial release in this case.
