Anchorage Man Gets 13 Years In Prison For Drug Trafficking 

JUL 02 -- (Anchorage, AK) – On June 28, 2010, Sedric O. Williams, 31, of Anchorage, Alaska was sentenced to serve 156 months in federal prison for one count of drug-trafficking conspiracy and one count of attempting to possess crack cocaine, heroin and MDMA, or Ecstacy, with the intent to distribute. On March 10, 2010, after deliberating two hours, a federal jury found Williams guilty of the above counts.

The evidence presented at trial established that Williams was apprehended after being identified by law enforcement as one of the intended recipients of a Federal Express parcel containing heroin, ecstacy, and more than five grams of crack cocaine. The package was intercepted by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Evidence at the scene of the delivery indicated that Williams took possession of the plastic bags that had contained the drugs in the minutes following the package’s arrival.

It was noted that Williams’ series of earlier criminal convictions had failed to deter him from trafficking in narcotics.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, including DEA Task Force members from the Anchorage Police Department and the Alaska State Troopers.
