The investigation and conviction is part of an Organized Crime Drug
Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and
dismantles the highest-level drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations that threaten the United States by using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach that leverages the strengths of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies against criminal networks.

United States District Judge Terry A. Doughty sentenced Bosley to 110 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release for distribution of methamphetamine.
