“Breaking Bad” in Montana – Real Walter White Gets 12 Years for Dealing Meth
Who would have thought that a real life Walter White lives in Montana and is a meth dealer? Its true, Billings resident, Walter White, recently received a 12 year sentence in federal prison.
According to the Billings Gazette
A Lockwood man who dealt methamphetamine out of his home and got shot in his driveway in a gunfight with his son over a drug debt will spend more than 12 years in federal prison.
Senior U.S. District Judge Don Molloy on Monday sentenced Walter Jack White, 53, to nine years on a meth possession charge and to a consecutive three-and-a-half years for a firearms conviction.
The judge held White responsible for about 32 pounds of meth. Molloy called the quantity of meth “extraordinary” and said White became consumed by his addiction. Officers arrested White in March after federal and state law enforcement officers executed a search warrant on his Lockwood home.
They seized about four ounces of meth, valued at about $10,000, two handguns and more than $15,000 in cash.The search occurred after White was shot in January outside his house and business on Lockwood Road. Authorities said White was shot by his son, Brandon Jay Joseph White, over a disputed drug debt.
