to a number of people. One of Miller's principal buyers was Don Roe, who
was a drug dealer. Roe testified that he generally bought four ounces of
methamphetamine at a time, at a cost of $5,000 per purchase. On two
occasions, Roe purchased one-pound quantities. The defendant sometimes
"fronted" these drugs, that is, he gave them to Roe and did not demand
payment until a later date. Roe testified that on September 5, 1993, he
and Jackie Bingham Williams went to Miller's house to buy methamphetamine.
Roe took this purchase back to his home, where the police discovered it
later that day.
A number of witnesses corroborated Roe's testimony. Lisa Gulledge
stated that she accompanied Roe, whom she described as a well-known drug
dealer, on trips to Miller's house to purchase methamphetamine. Mark
Kenyon, who sold methamphetamine for Roe, testified that in early 1993, he
and Roe purchased methamphetamine from Miller. Donna Carter said that she
bought methamphetamine from Roe, and had seen the defendant dispense this
drug to Gulledge, Kenyon, and Kathy Reeves. Also, Jackie Bingham Williams
confirmed Roe's account of the events of September 5, 1993.
Two other important witnesses were Jerry Wilson and Veronica Simone.
Wilson testified that, beginning in the spring of 1993, he purchased one-
eighth of an ounce of methamphetamine from Miller every month. Eventually,
he started buying a pound at a time. The defendant sometimes fronted these
drugs to Wilson, who resold them. Veronica Simone testified that when she
was seven and one-half months' pregnant, Miller sold her methamphetamine.
The jury convicted Miller of conspiring to distribute and to possess
with intent to distribute methamphetamine, 21 U.S.C. § 846, distributing
methamphetamine, 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1), and distributing methamphetamine
to a pregnant person, 21 U.S.C. § 861(f). Determining that Miller was the
