Prosecutors announced Thursday that a Springfield man was sentenced to prison for his role in a conspiracy that distributed at least 15 kilograms of methamphetamine in Cass, Greene and Miller counties in 2017 and 2018.
Jordan H. Williamson, 32, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool to 17 years in federal prison without parole.
Williamson pleaded guilty in May to participating in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. He admitted that he received methamphetamine to distribute from co-conspirator Christina E. Gauger, 39, of Springfield.
While the conspiracy lasted, Gauger obtained at least one pound of methamphetamine for distribution each week. Investigators seized approximately 2.5 kilograms of methamphetamine during the investigation.
The case has multiple defendants. Jacob B. Piatchek, 26, of Springfield, previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in federal prison without parole.
Along with Gauger, Springfield residents Patrick R. Waters, 33; Robin L. Self, 37; and Jason L. Thomas, 42, have pleaded guilty and await sentencing.
Supervisory Assistant U.S. Attorney Randall D. Eggert and Assistant U.S. Attorney Byron Black are prosecuting the case.
The investigation was conducted by Springfield Police Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Cass County Sheriff’s Department; along with two federal agencies: the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
