Comments Off on Former officer with the Odessa Police Department, Jackie Lynn Thompson pleads to Methamphetamine dealing

A former local law enforcement officer pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.

Jackie Lynn Thompson, formerly an officer with the Odessa Police Department and former reserve officer with the Ector County Sheriff’s Office, could face between 10 years and life in federal prison, according to statutory minimum and maximum laws. Statutory regulations on sentences set out the highest and lowest sentence a judge is allowed to give out under federal law.

Magistrate Judge David Counts told Thompson during the sentencing hearing that a pre-sentencing report will be created, giving District Judge Robert Junell a sentencing guideline within the statutory minimum and maximum.

Thompson is accused of receiving 500 grams of methamphetamine on a regular basis and having two other men charged in the indictment deliver the methamphetamine for him.

According to the plea agreement, detectives began investigating a methamphetamine distribution group in Midland and discovered a man who was a source of supply to various individuals.

Through the investigation, using an undercover officer to make purchases and a wiretap, agents confirmed that Thompson was receiving methamphetamine from the supplier.

The man admitted to supplying Thompson on numerous occasions more than 500 grams of methamphetamine on each delivery.
