A Mount Vernon man on Wednesday was sentenced to serve over 11 years in federal prison after he earlier this year pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
According to a news release from U.S. Attorney Stephen D. Weinhoeft, Leonard M. "Lenny" Falcone, 51, was handed a 140-month sentence, to be followed by three years of mandatory supervised release.
The release states evidence at the plea hearing showed that Falcone was involved with several other people in dealing ice, an extremely pure form of meth, in Williamson, Franklin and Jefferson counties, from September 2017 to May 2018. The judge found at sentencing that Falcone had been responsible for distributing 125 grams of ice.
