Troy Man Admits to Cocaine and Crack Conspiracy

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Tyrone D. Marshall, age 37, of Troy, New York, pled guilty today to conspiring to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine in Albany and Rensselaer Counties.

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and James N. Hendricks, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Marshall admitted that from February 2017 to April 2017, he worked with others to acquire cocaine; cook and otherwise convert the cocaine into cocaine base (a/k/a crack cocaine); and sell crack cocaine and cocaine in Albany and Rensselaer Counties.  Marshall admitted that a co-conspirator typically acquired cocaine from a source of supply in the City of Albany and then brought the cocaine to his residence in Troy, where they would cook the cocaine into crack for resale.

Marshall, who has 3 prior drug felony convictions, faces up to 30 in prison, and at least 6 years of post-imprisonment supervised release, when he is sentenced by United States District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino on December 10, 2018.  A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other factors.

This case was investigated by the FBI and the New York State Police, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
