New York Man Sentenced For Conspiracy To Distribute Meth In East Tennessee

Monday, February 17, 2020


On Friday, 51-year-old Thomas Louis Motisi, currently of Staten Island, New York, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Clifton L. Corker in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Greeneville.

Motisi was sentenced to 160 months in prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in the Eastern District of Tennessee.

In the spring of 2016, multiple local and federal agencies worked together to investigate potential suspects in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy in Telford. Through the investigation, Motisi was found to be involved in the drug conspiracy. Motisi reportedly purchased methamphetamine from drug suppliers and redistributed the methamphetamine to other drug dealers and users. In November 2019, Motisi was found guilty at trial of conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.

This investigation was the product of a partnership between the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Washington County Sheriff's Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Meghan L. Gomez and Emily M. Swecker represented the United States in court.
