CRACK DEALER SENTENCED TO FOURTEEN YEARS
BATON ROUGE, LA – United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr. announced that SANDY DAVIS, age 30, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was sentenced today in federal court. DAVIS was sentenced to serve a term of imprisonment of one hundred and sixty-eight months followed by a term of supervised release of five years.
On April 27, May 3, and July 5, 2006, DAVIS sold over fifty (50) grams of crack cocaine. Having sold approximately 6.5 ounces of crack cocaine, DAVIS was indicted by the grand jury and on February 6, 2009, DAVIS pled guilty as charged. Thereafter, while in the West Baton Rouge Parish Prison awaiting sentencing, law enforcement agents found, on two separate occasions, a cellular telephone in the defendant’s possession. Louisiana law makes it a felony for an inmate to possess a cell phone.
At sentencing, the defendant was found not to have provided truthful information to authorities surrounding the extent of his drug trafficking activities. Before imposing his sentence, Chief Judge Ralph E. Tyson observed that DAVIS had an extensive criminal record which included arrests for crimes of violence.
The investigation of DAVIS was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Louisiana State Police, Baton Rouge Police Department, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Gonzales Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert W. Piedrahita.
