Acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced Friday that 35-year-old Nolan Washington a.k.a. “Slim Thug” was sentenced to 10 years in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release.

Information introduced in court revealed that between March 1, 2019, and Dec. 31, 2019, Washington conspired with others to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute over 50 grams of methamphetamine.
