GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- William Birch Gudger, a.k.a. “Bill Bill”, 35, was sentenced Monday to serve 125 months in federal prison for his involvement in a crack cocaine conspiracy.
In April 2013, Gudger was arrested on an unrelated charge and placed in the Greene County Detention Center.
While there, Gudger contacted Misty Lee Millar, 34, of Greeneville, and asked her to go to his houses and “secure everything,” meaning for her to move his drugs so the police and/or rival drug dealers would not find them.
Law enforcement officers searched Millar’s home and found more than 113 grams of crack cocaine, which she had moved from Gudger’s residences.
Search warrants were executed at both of Gudger’s residences in Greeneville, during which officers located digital scales, ammunition, paraphernalia, and other miscellaneous items.
Gudger was interviewed by law enforcement officers and admitted that he had asked Millar to remove his crack cocaine from his residences for him.
He also admitted to cooking and dealing crack cocaine.
Gudger told officers he had received three ounces of cocaine the previous week and cooked it into crack cocaine at one of his residences.
In May 2013, Gudger sold approximately 2.3 grams of crack cocaine to an individual working on behalf of law enforcement at one of his residences.
In August 2013, Gudger was arrested again with to two to three grams of crack cocaine on his person.
Millar was previously sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge J. Ronnie Greer to serve 60 months in federal prison for her role in the conspiracy.
