A Carbondale man pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to a two-count indictment charging conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine and unlawful distribution of meth.
Answar D. Rollins Jr., also known as "Chuck" and "Swar," a 31-year-old, allegedly conspired to deal meth in Jackson County from March 2017 to Aug. 8, 2017. The conspiracy charge carries a maximum sentence of five to 40 years in prison, plus four years of supervised release and a $5 million fine. The distribution charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, plus three years of supervised release and a $1 million fine.
Rollins also admitted in the plea hearing that he violated the terms of his supervised release from a 2006 federal drug offense.
Rollins is being held without bond pending a July 18 sentencing hearing.
