Associate of Memphis Mob Pleads Guilty to Drug Conspiracy
An associate of the Memphis Mob, a violent street organization, has pled guilty to conspiring to possess hydrocodone with the intent to distribute. His guilty plea was announced Tuesday.
According to the indictment, Terrance Freeman unlawfully conspired with others to distribute large quantities of hydrocodone throughout the Memphis area beginning at a time period unknown to law enforcement but up until April 2014.
A yearlong investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) into the Memphis Mob revealed Freeman’s illicit activity. According to information presented in court, FBI agents executed a search warrant on Freeman’s house in April 2014. Numerous hydrocodone pills, more than $8,000 in drug currency, and a loaded Glock 9mm pistol with a 31-round extended magazine were recovered during the search. Freeman, who has three prior felony convictions, was subsequently detained on federal drug charges.
On Monday, September 14th, he accepted a plea of 12 ½ years in federal prison. Freeman also faces a fine of up to $2,500,000 when sentenced.
He’s scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Samuel H. Mays Jr. on December 17, 2015.
The case was investigated by the FBI and the Memphis Police Department.
