Maybe he should've called Saul.
Walter White, a Montana man who shares the same name as the “Breaking Bad” character, was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison by a federal judge Monday.
Walter Jack White, of Billings, Mont., pleaded guilty to distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy sentenced White to 108 months in prison – about 12 ½ years – and five years of probation, which prevents him from owning a gun “or any other dangerous weapon” when he’s released.
According to a federal affidavit, a warrant executed for White’s home in March yielded “multiple items of evidence,” including four ounces of meth, two guns and more than $15,000 in cash. One of the guns was hidden under a mattress and the other was found in a safe.
When federal agents interviewed White, the Montana man admitted to distributing methamphetamine out of his home. He told authorities he received about one to two pounds of meth once a week from his supplier.
White also admitted to having firearms and told federal agents he kept one gun under his pillow “for protection from individuals involved in drug trafficking who may intend to rob or shoot him.” He also told agents that he traded meth for one of the guns in his possession.
