Columbus Field Division
A Ravenna man was sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for drug and firearms crimes.
Jesse Templeton, 37, was sentenced to 123 months in federal prison. A jury last year convicted Templeton on one count of possession with intent to distribute dimethyltrytapmine and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.
Templeton on July 4, 2018, possessed more than 1,200 grams of dimethyltrytapmine and a Sig Sauer .40-caliber pistol, according to court documents.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Peter Daly and Aaron Howell following an investigation by the Portage County Sheriff’s Office and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
