Monica Denton heads back to prison
A Cocke County woman sentenced to a federal prison term in February, 2012, for aiding and abetting an armed robbery and selling Oxycodone, is headed back to federal prison. . Monica Denton, 44, Fox Chase Road, Newport, pleaded guilty originally to charges stemming from a conspiracy to distribute cocaine, marijuana and oxycodone headed up by William "Billy Mac" McMahan. And she pleaded guilty to the robbery of the Dandridge Waffle House in 2010. US District Judge Ronnie Greer ordered her to serve a 99 month prison term, followed by six years of supervised release. Denton was released from prison in January but is returning after she recently tested positive for Oxycodone, Suboxone and cocaine while on supervised release. The defendant is the daughter of Rusty Denton who was convicted of shooting four men in the Red Lantern Tavern in Newport on Christmas Day in 1976. During the hearing earlier this week, Attorney Wayne Stambaugh representing Denton, argued that her continued drug usage is an attempt at self-medication, stemming from a mental illness that developed as the result of her father's lifestyle.
