A Purvis husband and wife were sentenced to prison late last week for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine, heroine and fentanyl.
Jeremy Graham, 32, and Harley Graham, 26, were both sentenced to 236 months, or 19.5 years, in prison.
Jeremy Graham pled guilty on Feb. 10, and Harley Graham pled guilty on Feb. 14, to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
According to a press release, the couple started selling “serious” drugs in 2020 “to numerous individuals in Lamar and Harrison counties, including individuals that overdosed.”
Prosecutors said the Grahams were aware of the overdoses.
The conspiracy also involved the Grahams using a gun and flashlight to beat someone associated with the operation. Although the conspiracy involved several individuals, prosecutors said the Grahams were at the top of the pyramid.
The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, and the Long Beach Police Department.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Annette Williams prosecuted the case.
