Beginning in late 2017, DEA agents received information that Carter was involved in distributing methamphetamine in the McClain, Mississippi area.

On June 21, 2018, an individual purchased 54.9 grams of methamphetamine from Carter for $1,000.  The DEA Crime lab determined that the methamphetamine was 100% pure.

On July 11, 2018, an individual purchased methamphetamine from Carter for $1,000.  The DEA crime lab determined the methamphetamine weighed 52.5 grams and was 98% pure.

Carter was charged in a federal criminal indictment and pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine before Judge Guirola on January 28, 2020.  Carter has two prior felony drug convictions and was sentenced as a career offender.
