Seabrook Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Drug Trafficking in Jefferson County

A Seabrook man, Justin Hall McSpadden, has been sentenced to federal prison for his involvement in drug trafficking within the Eastern District of Texas, as announced by U.S. Attorney Damien M. Diggs today.

McSpadden, aged 45, entered a guilty plea for possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. He was subsequently sentenced to 235 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Marcia A. Crone on October 20, 2023.

Court records reveal that on October 1, 2021, McSpadden was involved in the sale of four ounces of methamphetamine for $1,200.00 to an individual at the Petro Truck Stop, located at 5405 Walden Road in Beaumont. Later on the same day, law enforcement officials conducted a traffic stop on McSpadden along Cardinal Drive in Beaumont. During the course of this traffic stop, additional illicit materials were discovered, including two ounces of methamphetamine found inside a toolbox within the vehicle and a handgun located on the driver’s side floorboard. McSpadden was subsequently indicted and charged with federal drug trafficking violations.

This case was subject to an investigation by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael A. Anderson.
