According to court documents and statements made in court, on three separate occasions in July and August 2010, CONNER sold a total of approximately 39 grams of crack cocaine to another individual in New Haven.

CONNER was arrested on federal narcotics distribution charges on September 30, 2010.  On October 28, 2010, he pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of 28 grams or more of cocaine base (“crack cocaine”).
