COLUMBIA, SC — A 27-year-old Sumter man with multiple drug convictions faces a minimum of 15 years in prison after being convicted of drug trafficking and firearm offenses.
U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said Alvis Damon Williams was convicted of dealing in cocaine and crack cocaine, possessing a firearm in furtherance of his drug dealing and illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
In June of last year, Williams was pulled over by Sumter County Sheriff’s officers after he distributed cocaine outside of a Sumter hotel.
Officers say they found a .40 caliber Colt pistol, $1600 in cash, crack and powder cocaine in a false-bottom canister, marijuana, a scale, cell phones, plastic baggies and creatine, which is used to cut or dilute cocaine, inside Williams’ car.
U.S. Attorney Nettles said Williams could receive a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of life in prison when he is sentenced in the coming months.
