Michael Wood, who was most notably convicted in a massive 2003 The Kitsap County, Washington, meth sting was on supervised release at the time of his latest arrest and subsequent conviction.
According to a official release IRS, US District Judge John C. Coughenour noted that it was Wood’s third federal conviction and that he did not do well during his time out of jail.
“He has the most (parole) revocations I have seen in 40 years in court,” Judge Coughenour said.
Woods was initially convicted of possession of methamphetamine and illegal possession of a firearm in 2001. In 2003, he received his first federal drug trafficking conviction for the aforementioned Kitsap County case. In 2011 he was again convicted of drug trafficking in Kitsap County.
While on supervision of the 2011 drug case, he faced additional drug trafficking charges in 2015. Wood was released in 2018, and while on supervision of both the 2011 state case and the 2015 federal case, he committed the crimes of distribution of drugs for which he was sentenced. this week.
Assistant US Attorney Amy Jaquette shared her thoughts in the sentencing memorandum: “Wood’s story demonstrates that he has spent most of his life involved in drug trafficking. In his third federal conviction, he has not been deterred from the style of life of a criminal and rather, has continued at every turn to partner with high-level drug organizations that supplied him with significant amounts of methamphetamine to redistribute. His complete failure to comply with the terms of supervision further underscores the need for a meaningful sentence.”
The Woods case is part of a Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation in association with IRS-CI, US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Office of Tacoma Residents, Tahoma Narcotics Enforcement Team (TNET), Kent Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations, SeaTac Police Department, Thurston County Narcotics Team (TNT), Bureau of Investigations, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
