            DAJAMUEL DIONE FLOYD, 31, pleaded guilty on Oct. 8, 2008, to possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and use and carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking crime and was sentenced today to 110 months in federal prison and a forfeiture judgment of $100,000.00 and all interest in property seized.
