A Harrison county man who had initially entered a guilty plea to federal drug charges is now appealing his sentence.
Izzah A. Stout, who is serving a 66-month sentence at Manchester Federal Correctional Institution for conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, filed a motion in U.S. District Court on March 3 to vacate his sentence.
Stout, who was arrested in Harrison County last May, was also charged with distribution of crack cocaine and abetting. Those charges were dismissed.
Stout’s case was assigned to Judge Karen K. Caldwell.
