Convicted felon, Leon Perry Perry Jr. sentenced to over nineteen years for selling meth
Sold methamphetamine to a federal agent on numerous occasions
Indianapolis (STL.News) Acting United States Attorney John E. Childress announced today that Leon Perry Jr., 37, of Indianapolis, was sentenced to 235 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge James P. Hanlon for Distribution of Methamphetamine. Perry Jr. was previously convicted of a serious violent felony, and his mandatory minimum sentence was enhanced for that reason.
“Prosecuting those who have a history of violence, like Perry Jr., who choose to sell the illegal drugs that are devastating our communities and igniting violence, will continue to be a priority of this office,” said Childress. “It is just another tool that can be used to help curb the violence that has been escalating in this city and throughout the country.”
In 2019, Perry Jr. was being investigated for the distribution of methamphetamine in and around the Indianapolis area. Not only was he distributing methamphetamine throughout the community, he was unknowingly selling it to the officers investigating him. In total, Perry Jr. sold over 600 grams to the officer.
