Mccomb Woman Pleads Guilty To Possession With Intent To Distribute Crack Cocaine

Jackson, Miss – Latoya Renae Bonds, 30 of McComb, pled guilty on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, to possession with intent to distribute cocaine base (“crack”), announced U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis. She will be sentenced on April 25, 2014 and faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000.00 fine.

Bonds was indicted along with co-defendants Jermaine Henderson and Craig Lemark Kaho.

They are scheduled for trial on March 3, 2014 before U.S. District Judge Carlton W. Reeves.
