Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Rondell Hackett, age 22, 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.

According to his guilty plea, between March and May, 2007, Hackett was intercepted in a series of communications in which he agreed to store and deliver quantities of cocaine for one of his co-conspirators, agreed to collect drug proceeds from customers, and agreed to negotiate the purchase of cocaine for a co-conspirator when that person’s sources of supply were unavailable. Hackett agreed to distribute over 5 kilograms but less than 15 kilograms of cocaine. Additionally, Hackett agreed to purchase a handgun for a co-conspirator.

United States Attorney 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.
