Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Jerry Brown, age 29, of Baltimore, today to 151 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute over five kilograms of cocaine, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J.

Rosenstein thanked the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Baltimore County Police Department for their investigative work in this Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case, and commended Assistant United States Attorney Charles J. Peters, who prosecuted the case.
