Drug Conspiracy Brings Sentence Of 100 Months

Frankie D. Crum, 35, of Greeneville, was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court to serve 100 months in federal prison for his participation in a conspiracy responsible for the distribution of large quantities of oxycodone and marijuana in the Eastern District of Tennessee, U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman Sharry Dedman-Beard said in a news release.

Crum was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge J. Ronnie Greer.

Frankie D. Crum and his cousin Frankie L. Crum "participated in a large number of organized trips to various pain clinics with other co-conspirators across the Southeast region of the United States to illegally obtain oxycodone pills," Dedman-Beard said.

The pills were transported back to the Greeneville area and sold. Frankie D. Crum stipulated that he was accountable for a conservative estimate of 1,750 oxycodone pills and 150 pounds of marijuana.

Frankie L. Crum is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 19.

The overall criminal conspiracy that included the Crums operated between 2005 and 2012 and involved 13 indicted individuals, federal authorities said.

Law enforcement agencies participating in the investigation which led to indictment and conviction of Crum and others in the conspiracy include the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marshals Office, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the Third Judicial District Drug Task Force, the Greene County Sheriff's Department, the Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Morristown Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Wayne Taylor prosecuted the case.

"Our prosecutors and the federal and state law enforcement agencies did a great job of working together to obtain a conviction in this case, which resulted in the elimination of large quantities of oxycodone and marijuana being distributed in the Eastern District of Tennessee. I want to thank all those involved in bringing this individual to justice," U.S. Attorney William C. Killian said in a news release.

The case was part of the U.S. Department of Justice's Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) and the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) programs.
