ATLANTA -- A former Fulton County sheriff's deputy was fined $3,000 and sentenced to two years in federal prison Thursday on cocaine trafficking charges.
Everett Meadows, 33, of Alpharetta also was sentenced to three years of supervised release. He pleaded guilty in March to charges of conspiracy to possess with intention to distribute and distribution of cocaine.
Mr. Meadows, a jailer at the time of the offense, and Scott Byers conspired to distribute cocaine in transactions arranged through a confidential informant in the Atlanta area in 1995, federal authorities said.
Mr. Byers, convicted as a co-conspirator, was fined $2,000 and sentenced to 21 months in prison and five years of supervised released.
