DERRICK MOSELY, 33, a resident of Houma, was sentenced today in federal court by U. S. District Judge Martin L.C. Feldman to over fifteen years (188 months) in prison for three counts of distribution of cocaine, announced U. S. Attorney Jim Letten. In addition, the defendant was ordered to serve six (6) years supervised release during which time the defendant will be under federal supervision and risks additional imprisonment should he violate the terms of the release.

According to court documents, MOSELY pled guilty on April 1, 2010 admitting that on December 11, December 15, and December 19, 2008, in Houma, Louisiana, he intentionally distributed a quantity of cocaine to a confidential informant in Houma, Louisiana. Additionally, MOSELY faced an enhanced sentence because he has a prior conviction for a felony drug offense.

The investigation was conducted by Special Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Terrebonne Narcotics Task Force. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Andre’ Jones.
