GULFPORT -- An associate of the Black Gangsta Disciples street gang will serve five years in prison and pay a $5,000 fine for his transporting meth to George County for distribution.
U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden also ordered Jamalia Nix, 35, of Mobile, to serve three years under post-release supervision on a charge of interstate travel in aid of racketeering. In exchange for his plea, the remaining charges were dropped.
Nix, records show, brought meth from Texas to George County.
