Huntsville man sentenced to 25 years for possession of child pornography
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The leader of a drug conspiracy responsible for importing pure methamphetamine into Madison County was sentenced this week.
Prosecutors said Melvin “Froggy” Rolin was responsible for bringing over 90 kilograms into Madison, Limestone, Morgan and Cullman counties. He was sentenced by a federal judge to 24 years and 7 months in prison.
Rolin pled guilty in June 2019 to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine between January 2016 and February 2018. He also pled guilty to distributing five grams or more of methamphetamine on February 3, 2018 and to possessing a North American Arms .22 magnum caliber pistol firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and being a felon in possession of a firearm
Barry Williams was also sentenced to 12 and a half years in prison for his role in the drug conspiracy.
Williams pled guilty in October 2019 to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine between January 2016 and February 2018.
“There is no daylight between local, state and federal law enforcement,” U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town said. “These prosecutions represent the hard work of many of our law enforcement partners and exemplify our global efforts to stop the influx of dangerous drugs like methamphetamine being brought into our communities. These defendants will now be joined by other drug dealers in a federal prison.”
The DEA, ATF along with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, and Cullman County Sherriff’s Office investigated the case, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert J. Becher, Sr. prosecuted.
