FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 31, 2013

     The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District Pennsylvania announced that Marlon T. Holmes, a/k/a “Peanut,” age 37, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison for drug trafficking.

     According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Holmes was charged with cocaine trafficking in Harrisburg from 2007 through October 2008. A grand jury indicted Holmes in 2008, but he remained a fugitive for approximately three years before he was arrested by authorities in November 2011. In June 2012, Holmes entered a guilty plea to cocaine and crack cocaine trafficking before the Senior United States District Court Judge William A. Caldwell.

     Today, Judge Caldwell sentenced Holmes to a sentence of 11 years of incarceration and a fine of $900. Upon his release from prison, Holmes must serve three years of supervised release.

     The United States Drug Enforcement Administration, the Dauphin County Drug Task Force, and the Harrisburg Bureau of Police worked together on this investigation. Prosecution was assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Michael A. Consiglio.
