Specifically, Le was sentenced to 60 months on each of the gun counts, which are required by statute to be served consecutively to all other sentences. Le was sentenced to one month on the drug count, which will also be consecutive. Judge Beaverstock ordered that Le will serve a term of five years under supervised release when he is discharged from prison. The judge also ordered that Le will pay special assessments of $300.
The case was investigated by the Foley Police Department, the Daphne Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
