Athens gang member sentenced to prison for drugs and weapons conviction


Travious Demetrius Huff

By Joe Johnson

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.

In Clarke County, the problem is getting cases to trial. Charges like aggravated child molestation and sexual servitude are getting dismissed. Even when a case gets to a jury there are often procedural mistakes. (SOURCE 11Alive news)

For all the ppl blaming the DA im jus curious if ya’ll know how the judicial system actually works? The DA’s job is to prosecute (institute legal proceedings against a person or organization) criminals, she has NOTHING to do with the sentence the Judge imposes on said criminal. She charged this young man correctly its the Judge that dropped the ball in this case SEVERAL times. Not prosecuting misdemeanor marijuana crimes does not mean “soft” on crimes. She’s issuing the proper charges but the Judge’s aren’t issuing the proper sentence in which she has no power over. Ya’ll want her to be the DA, Judge and Jury bcuz you don’t fully understand HER responsibilities, it’s the Judge’s ya’ll need to…

Actually I do understand her duties and she is being sued for dereliction of those duties.
