Getting a 30-year prison sentence was bad enough, but Alan G. Hampton’s crummy week just rolled on.
A federal grand jury on Friday charged the 42-year-old Liberty man with methamphetamine trafficking and illegally possessing firearms.
On Wednesday in Clay County, Hampton received the long prison term, which was related to a violent confrontation with a Missouri Highway Patrol trooper in July 2012. The trooper shot Hampton twice as he fled with the officer hanging on to his car.
The federal charges cover Hampton’s alleged conduct before the melee with the trooper. The 10-count conspiracy indictment alleged that Hampton distributed methamphetamine from February 2011 to March 2012.
The grand jury also charged Hampton, already a convicted felon at that time, with illegally possessing handguns in November and December 2011.
