Kennedy, Jr. says that Tracey Wynn, 38, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute, and distributing, 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a $10,000,000 fine.Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, who is handling the case, stated that between September 2018 and January 2019, the defendant was a drug trafficking associate of Douglas Beardsley and sold methamphetamine allegedly supplied by Beardsley. Wynn typically received methamphetamine from Beardsley to sell two or three times a week. During the conspiracy, the defendant and Beardsley would communicate often about the operation, including through their Facebook accounts. On four separate occasions, Wynn sold methamphetamine to an individual working with the Drug Enforcement Administration. On August 7, 2017, investigators executed a New York search warrant at the defendant’s residence and recovered a quantity of methamphetamine, approximately $347 in cash, drug paraphernalia, and mail. Also inside the residence, investigators identified items indicating children lived at the residence. On October 23, 2019, Wynn committed a moving traffic violation and was stopped by a Jamestown Police officer. During the stop, the officer asked the defendant exit the vehicle. A search of the driver side area yielded two digital scales, one of which had crystal methamphetamine on it. Wynn was arrested at the scene for driving with a suspended license and possession of drug paraphernalia. At the jail, a bag of marijuana was found in the defendant’s sweatshirt pocket, and plastic bags of methamphetamine were found on her person. Charges remain pending against Douglas Beardsley. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.   The plea is the result of an investigation by the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Acting Chief Timothy Jackson; the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Ray Donovan, New York Field Division; and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge John B. Devito, New York Field Division.   Sentencing is scheduled for November 13, at 12:30 p.m. before Judge Arcara.last_img read more

Damian Lillard doubts players will follow NBA’s bubble rules, questions league’s ‘best interests’

first_imgBefore the restart of the season, there was reported discourse between multiple angles among the players, with the safety of players and the potential that an NBA restart would take away from current protests and civil unrest around the country, with sports offering a distraction.ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith also questioned if players will be able to handle the upcoming season without … extra-curricular activities. In any case, if one of the NBA’s most public-facing stars is questioning the stability of the bubble, maybe the league should listen. In asking a question of his own, the Trail Blazers guard cast doubt upon whether NBA players will be able to stay within the lines of the NBA’s restart guidelines.”My confidence ain’t great,” Lillard told ESPN. “My confidence ain’t great because you’re telling me you’re gonna have 22 teams full of players following all the rules? When we have 100 percent freedom, everybody don’t follow all the rules. I don’t have much confidence. But hopefully it’ll be handled to a point where we’re not putting everybody at risk or in a dangerous position.”MORE: Complete list of NBA players opting out of the seasonLillard detailed that while he and the rest of the NBA will have different forms of activities and entertainment, there are still some questions as to whether the Association had the players’ “best interests” in mind.”We’ll see if it was really well thought out and if they really had our best interests once we get there.” Damian Lillard thinks the NBA’s bubble may be popped.With the NBA planning its Orlando restart in a “bubble” scenario with members of 22 teams being housed and isolated within the Disney World resort in Florida, many questions have been raised as to the plan’s overall safety and the strict ruleset that the league has imposed on its players.last_img read more
