MARSHALL, Texas (KYTX) - Attorney John M. Bales announced today that a man and women from Karnack, Texas have been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking violations.

In August of 2012 Gregory Scott Covey, 42, and Christine Francis Sirmans, 45, pleaded guilty to possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. Covey was sentenced to 110 months in prison and Sirmans was sentenced to 54 months.

According to information presented in court, Covey purchased cold pills containing pseudoephedrine at stores in Marshall, Texas, at least 32 times  from March 21, 2010 to September 3, 2010. From Oct. 12, 2008 to Nov. 16, 2010, Sirmans purchased cold pills containing pseudoephedrine at stores in Marshall and Carthage, Texas, at least 74 times. The cold pills were purchased to be used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

An 839-count federal indicted was returned on Feb. 1, 2012, charging Covey and Sirmans and 15 other co-defendants with federal drug crimes.  Of those defendants, 16 have been convicted.
