     After he pleaded guilty in October 2021 to one count of distributing methamphetamine, a federal judge sentenced Ahmed Binyamin Alasiri, 45, a.k.a. Kevin Lamar to 188 months in federal prison for selling the four pounds of methamphetamine while he was on supervised release after a 2009 terrorism conviction. The judge sentenced him to another 24 months because he violated the terms of his supervised release.  Alasiri sold the methamphetamine three times a year after being released from prison and while serving a term of federal supervised release. On July 24, 2020, Alasiri sold the buyer 430 grams of pure methamphetamine in exchange for $3,700. On August 6, 2020, Alasiri exchanged 435 grams of pure methamphetamine to the buyer for $3,700. On August 20, 2020, Alasiri distributed 877 grams of pure methamphetamine to the buyer in exchange for $7,400. 

     Alasiri was on supervised release after completing a 16-year federal prison sentence for conspiring to levy war against the United States through terrorism.
