Dixon Man Sentenced to Prison for Federal Drug and Gun Violations
DAVENPORT, Iowa - United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum announced on November 19, 2019, Jamie Allen Fulton, age 51, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose for Conspiracy to Deliver Methamphetamine and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. Fulton was sentenced to 72 months in prison, to be followed by a term of supervised release of four years. Fulton was also ordered to pay $200 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.
Fulton pleaded guilty to the offenses on July 26, 2019, and admitted that he conspired with others from at least January 2017 and continuing until October 24, 2018, to distribute methamphetamine. As part of the conspiracy Fulton sold methamphetamine twice during an undercover operation. A search warrant was executed at Fulton’s residence, and Fulton was found in possession of distribution amounts of methamphetamine and a loaded Kel-Tec, nine-millimeter pistol. Fulton has prior federal felony convictions for Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine and Possession of a Sawed-Off Shotgun, both of which caused Fulton to be prohibited from legally possessing firearms.
This matter was investigated by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office - Special Operations Unit and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
