According to court documents, on October 7, 2021, Jason P. Elder, 43, of Henderson, Kentucky, possessed with the intent to distribute 164.95 grams of methamphetamine.

When Elder committed this offense, he was on supervised release for a previous federal drug trafficking conviction, and he received an additional sentence of 12 months and 1 day for that violation. His total sentence in federal prison is 163 months and 1 day.

Following the prison sentence, Elder will serve five years on supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

“Individuals like the defendant, who plan to flood Western Kentucky communities with poisonous substances, will face lengthy federal prison sentences,” stated U.S. Attorney Bennett. “Working with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners, we will continue to focus federal resources on drug traffickers as we strive to increase public safety in the Western District.”

“As highly addictive drugs continue to plague communities throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, this sentence removes an important cog in this western Kentucky ring of destruction,” stated FBI Special Agent in Charge Cohen. “Knowing the harm that drug trafficking brings to our neighborhoods, the FBI will continue to use all resources necessary to bring drug dealers to justice.”
