Two Spokane Meth Dealers Sentenced To Prison

SPOKANE, Wash. – Friday, Michael David Luce, age 31, and Amanda G. McIntyre, age 29, both residents of Spokane, were sentenced for their roles in the distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm.

In April 2009, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office opened an investigation concerning allegations that Michael David Luce and his then girlfriend (now wife), Amanda G. McIntyre were distributing methamphetamine in northeast Spokane. Officers arranged for the purchase of methamphetamine from them on April 24, 2009. A search warrant was executed at their home on April 30, 2009. Officers seized over one kilogram of methamphetamine, two semiautomatic pistols, and ammunition. Michael Luce is a previously convicted felon and thus, prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition. Michael Luce pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute and being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition. Amanda McIntyre pleaded guilty to distributing methamphetamine.

For the drug offense, Michael Luce was sentenced to 216 months (18 years) in prison followed by a life term of court supervision after he is released. Michael Luce was also sentenced to 10 years in prison for the firearms offense, concurrent with his prison sentence on the drug offense. For her role in the methamphetamine offense, Amanda McIntyre was sentenced to 71 months in prison, followed by 10 years of court supervision after she is released. In the federal system, the type, quantity and purity of drugs, as well as prior criminal history have a significant impact on the length of sentence.

James A. McDevitt, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, said, "This sentence clearly reflects the serious nature of these charges. As well, the successful prosecution of this case is due to the partnership between the Spokane County Sheriff's Office, the DEA, the ATF and this office."
