August 6, 2008

Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Sammie Lee Carroll, Jr., age 47, of Baltimore, today to 188 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for distributing heroin, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Quarles enhanced Carroll’s sentence upon finding that Carroll is a career offender based on four previous narcotics convictions and ordered that Carroll forfeit the $94,801 he paid to undercover officers for a prior drug debt.

According to his guilty plea, on November 9, 2006 Carroll gave an undercover officer $89,801 which he owed for previous drug transactions. On November 16, 2006, DEA agents observed Carroll provide an undercover officer with 283.7 grams of heroin and $5,000 at a parking lot in the Woodlawn area of Baltimore County.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Baltimore City Police Department and the University of Maryland Police Department for their investigative work, and commended Assistant United States Attorney Christopher J. Romano, who prosecuted the case.
