Jacksonville Woman Sentenced To 10 Years for Distributing Methamphetamine and Fentanyl

Jacksonville, Florida – Chief U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Corrigan has sentenced Annette Jones (37, Jacksonville) to 10 years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine. Jones entered a guilty plea on November 16, 2023.

According to court documents, Jones was part of a drug trafficking organization (DTO) that distributed large quantities of methamphetamine and fentanyl in Jacksonville between 2020 and 2023. During this time, Jones was responsible for distributing over 50 kilograms of methamphetamine and over 5 kilograms of fentanyl. Between December 2022 and February 2023, Jones sold over 1 kilogram of methamphetamine and a loaded firearm with an extended magazine to an undercover law enforcement officer. On March 15, 2023, federal agents and local law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Jones’s residence and recovered two loaded firearms, including one that had been reported stolen. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Homeland Security Investigations, the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office, and the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Aakash Singh.
