A man who was previously convicted of selling crack cocaine in Irvington NJ has now been sentenced to nine years in federal prison.
The suspect is a 44-year-old resident of Irvington, New Jersey. According to authorities, the suspect was a member of a drug ring that distributed narcotics in Essex County, NJ. The suspect allegedly sold cocaine out of two different houses located in Irvington, NJ.
Police raided one of the houses in November 2015 and allegedly found massive amounts of crack cocaine and powder cocaine.
The suspect was subsequently arrested and charged with federal drug crimes that included distribution of crack cocaine, possession of crack cocaine, and conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.
The suspect ultimately avoided trial in US District Court in Newark NJ by reaching a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The suspect pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, while prosecutors agreed to drop the remaining charges.
Now a judge has signed off on the plea agreement and sentenced the suspect to a term of incarceration of nine years in a federal penitentiary.
