B.M.F. Co-Founder Big Meech Wins Sentence Reduction!
We previously reported that B.M.F. co-founder Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory was sentenced to 33 years behind bar’s back in September of 2008.
Well, things have changed, Meech received some good news today, he’s coming home early!
CelebnMusic247.com reports that B.M.F. co-founder Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory received some great news today regarding his prison sentence.
Earlier today, U.S. District Judge David M. Lawson agreed to reduce Big Meech’s prison sentence from 360 months to 324 months.
The reduction amounts to a 3-year reduction for Big Meech.
Meech was convicted of running a nationwide Continual Criminal Enterprise, and Conspiracy To Launder Money Instruments which raked in over $270 million in drug proceeds from the late ’90s until the Feds took down B.M.F. in 2007.
In April of 2020, Big Meech, who was sentenced to 30 years, and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who received 25 years, filed for compassionate release, citing the risk the coronavirus posed to their health behind bars.
Southwest T was released from his 25-year prison sentence to home confinement, due to his elevated risk of catching the coronavirus. Big Meech tried to use the same argument in vain but a judge and an appeals court denied his request four separate times.
However, today’s sentence reduction Big Meech just received had nothing to do with his request for compassionate release.
Big Meech met the criteria for a sentence reduction USSG amendments 782 and 788, which revised the drug quantity and chemical quantity tables for all drug offenses.
