Milford faces 45 years in prison

By David Hotle, The JOURNAL


A Washington man faces 45 years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to delivery or possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine less than 5 grams, a Class C felony, the Washington County Attorney?s office reported.

Tracy Milford, 42, was charged in the case as a habitual offender, which means he had more than two prior felony convictions. The charges stem from a Sept. 13, 2017, arrest in which Milford delivered 1.72 grams of methamphetamine during a law enforcement operation in Washington. The charges were part of a joint investigation conducted by the Washington County Sheriff?s office, the Washington Police Department and the Keota Police Department.

Washington County Attorney John Gish said he is seeking prison for Milford, who may face an additional penalty of having a prior conviction for the delivery of controlled substances.
