Jury finds KCK man guilty in meth case

A federal jury Tuesday returned guilty verdicts against a Kansas City, Kansas, man who was arrested with half a pound of methamphetamine in his car, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Sean Alexander Tennison, 46, Kansas City, Kansas, was convicted in a jury trial on one count of conspiracy and one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

During trial, prosecutors presented evidence that investigators had Tennison and a co-defendant under surveillance when they met the seller outside El Rio Bravo Supermarket. During a car stop, investigators found 245.7 grams of methamphetamine that Tennison tried to hide in his pants, according to prosecutors.

During the same trial, co-defendants Luis Alberto Quintero-Jimenez and Eduardo Garcia-Patino pleaded guilty. Both are set for sentencing Jan. 30, 2020. In Quintero-Jiminez’s plea agreement, both parties agreed to recommend Quintero-Jiminez receive a sentence of 20 years in federal prison.

Tennison is set for sentencing Feb. 13, 2020. He could face a sentence of not less than 10 years in federal prison on each count. McAllister commended the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Jackson County Drug Task Force, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle McFarlane and Assistant U.S. Attorney Tris Hunt for their work on the case.
