Baltimore Career Offender Exiled to 30 Years In Prison For Conspiring to Distribute 66 Pounds of Heroin
Last of 8 Conspirators to be Sentenced for Drug Dealing in the Westport Section of Baltimore
Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Elliott Brown, age 32, of Baltimore today to 30 years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin. Judge Quarles enhanced Brown’s sentence upon finding that Brown is a career offender based on two prior drug convictions.
The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Baltimore City State’s Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy; Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III and Special Agent in Charge Richard A. McFeely of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
According to Brown’s guilty plea, from 2004 until July 2008, Brown conspired with others to distribute heroin in the Westport section of Baltimore City. Brown was a street lieutenant for the organization that sold heroin under the brand name “Dynasty.” Law enforcement observed Brown in and around the “street shop,” controlling the distribution of at least 66 pounds of heroin by street workers.
Brown is the last of eight defendants to be sentenced to between 84 months and 30 years in prison, including the leader of the drug organization, Jamal Stewart, age 32, of Baltimore.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked Baltimore City Assistant State’s Attorney Keri Brozilleri for her assistance in the investigation and prosecution. Mr. Rosenstein commended Assistant United States Attorney James T. Wallner and Special Assistant United States Attorney Christopher M. Mason, a cross-designated Baltimore City Assistant State’s Attorney assigned to EXILE cases, who prosecuted the case.
