Anchorage, Alaska – U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder announced that Dillinger Jay Graham, 39, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Timothy M. Burgess to 87 months in federal prison and four years of supervised release for a drug trafficking conspiracy.
On or about April 6, 2018, Graham and another person boarded flight 67, traveling from Seattle, Washington to Juneau, Alaska. When the two passengers exited the plane in Juneau, they were immediately detained and searched by the Juneau Police Department (JPD) drug investigators who had received drug trafficking information on Graham from the Port of Seattle Police Department.
Graham was carrying approximately 75.5 grams of heroin and 75.4 actual grams of meth, which were purchased in Seattle and intended to distribute to others for subsequent distribution in Juneau, Alaska. In May of 2019, Graham pled guilty to the allegations in Count 1 of the indictment, a drug trafficking conspiracy to import and sell significant quantities of meth, heroin, and other drugs to the community.
Graham has two felony convictions for drugs in 2009 and a felony conviction for theft. Graham did not have any other criminal convictions between his supervision release in 2014 and this current conviction.
The South East Alaska Cities Against Drugs (SEACAD) Drug Taskforce conducted the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of this case. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Schmidt.
