KNOXVILLE-Robert Randall "Peanut" Webb, 62, of Newport, was sentenced on Monday to serve 90 months in prison by the Honorable R. Leon Jordan, Senior U.S. District Judge. 

Webb pleaded guilty on May 1, 2012, to conspiring with others to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 280 grams or more of crack cocaine.  Upon his release from prison, he will remain on supervised release for five years. He was also ordered to pay a special assessment of $100.

Information presented at sentencing established that Webb used his home to conduct what was referred to as a convenience store for illegal drugs, from January 2011 until his arrest in February 2012. The court found that he managed the criminal activity which involved five or more participants including: James Robert Brickner, who previously received a sentence of 151 months in prison; Chelsea Shawntel Meigs, who previously received a sentence of 152 months in prison; and Margo Pondetta Gray, who previously received a sentence of 88 months in prison in the same indictment.
