A purported Athens street gang member has been sentenced to prison for a conviction on drug and weapons charges.
Travious Demetrius Huff, 25, on Friday pleaded guilty in Clarke County Superior Court to one count each of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
He was sentenced to 30 months in confinement and 10 years on probation.
Though Huff has not been convicted under the state’s anti-gang law, police have identified him as being affiliated with Sex Money Murda, an East Coast Bloods gang.
When arrested in January 2022 Huff was not only in possession of marijuana for distribution, but he illegally had a .45 caliber pistol with an extended magazine, according to court records.
Huff was not supposed to have guns because in 2020 he was convicted of felonies in connection with a home invasion indictment.
As part of a plea deal, the home invasion charge was dismissed in return for Huff pleading guilty to aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.
Court records show that he was sentenced to 24 months in the county jail and eight years on probation.
A year before that, Huff was sentenced to probation in connection with his arrest for pistol-whipping and shooting at someone.
