Louisville man sentenced to 151 months for possession of over 280 grams of fentanyl

Isiah Wimberley will be spending at least 85% of 151 months in federal prison for over half a pound of fentanyl pills and possession of multiple firearms by a felon.

An arrest warrant was issued for Wimberly in September 2021, according to his plea deal. When the warrant was executed, Wimberley's car was searched, turning up two loaded guns. Then, after conducting a search of his home, authorities found scales, an unloaded gun, and 90 grams of fentanyl. After that, in April 2022, police authorities learned that Wimberly was distributing drugs at a nearby motel. Law officers detained Wimberly and found an additional 191 grams of fentanyl. Wimberly stated that he possessed the narcotics collected on both occasions to sell them. Wimberly also acknowledged that he was aware that his prior felony convictions made it illegal for him to own a firearm.

Under federal law, Wimberley must serve at least 85% of his sentence, or more than 10 ½ years. He’ll then spend four years being supervised by federal probation officers.
