Career Drug Offender Sentenced to Over 15 Years in Federal prison

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
APRIL  11, 2008

Baltimore, Maryland - U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced James Carmon, age 51, of Baltimore, today to 188 months in prison followed by six years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute approximately 505 grams of cocaine, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Bennett enhanced Carmon’s sentence upon finding that he was a career offender based on two previous drug convictions.

According to his guilty plea, during September 2007, law enforcement officers received information that James Carmon, aka “June,” was selling large quantities of cocaine from his residence on N. Linwood Avenue in Baltimore. Officers saw Carmon engaging in hand-to-hand drug transactions with drug customers and using his Infinite Q45 and Mercedes SL500 in his drug trafficking activities. On September 26, 2007, Carmon was arrested after a struggle and officers recovered a half-ounce of cocaine from his hand. A subsequent search of Carmon’s home recovered additional powder cocaine, ziplock bags, crack cocaine, several digital scales, baggies and approximately $4,000 from inside Carmon’s pillow.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked Drug Enforcement Administration and the Baltimore City Police Department for their investigative work, and commended Assistant United States Attorney Kwame J. Manley, who prosecuted the case.
