Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis sentenced Tyrone Henderson, age 24, of Baltimore, today to 145 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
“Tyrone Henderson will go to federal prison and stay in federal prison for over 12 years. This prosecution demonstrates that cooperative law enforcement can make Baltimore more safe. Under the EXILE program, we are identifying, investigating and prosecuting those repeat offenders who are responsible for most violent crime and removing them from our streets,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to his plea agreement, on January 17, 2007, Baltimore City police officers searched 1440 Presstman Street in Baltimore, locating Henderson in a third floor bedroom. Police recovered a .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol from Henderson’s pants pocket, and 10 ziplock bags with cocaine packaged for street sale from the room.

Jessamy and Assistant State’s Attorneys Antonio Gioia and Bethany Durand, the Baltimore City Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for their assistance in the investigation and prosecution. Mr. Rosenstein commended Assistant United States Attorney David Copperthite, who prosecuted the case.
