Anthony Richard Kinard, 32, was arrested by Saraland police on Wednesday, March 27, 2013


In 2005, Kinard pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine in federal court, according to records. He was sentenced to 120 months in prison and four years of supervised released following his time in prison.

U.S. District Judge William Steele also recommended that Kinard get treatment for substance abuse and mental health issues.

In 2007, Steele agreed to lower Kinard’s sentence to 100 months, although the conditions of his supervised release were upheld.

Press-Register archives show Kinard was originally arrested at a home in Eight Mile on April 8, 2005, with a man and a woman. Kinard was charged with trafficking meth, first-degree manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of anhydrous ammonia and first-degree possession of marijuana.

In federal court, Kinard was initially charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth; selling, distributing or dispensing meth and possession of a listed chemical with the intent to manufacture a controlled substance. 

Records from U.S. District Court show Kinard will be in the custody of U.S. Marshals until he faces an initial court date on April 4 and a supervised release revocation hearing on April 19.
