Troy Man Sentenced to 92 Months for Cocaine and Crack Conspiracy

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Tyrone D. Marshall, age 37, of Troy, New York, was sentenced yesterday to 92 months in prison, to be followed by 6 years of supervised release, for 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).

In pleading guilty on August 15, 2018, 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. 

This case was investigated by the FBI and its Capital District Safe Streets Gang Task Force, which includes FBI Special Agents and members of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, including the New York State Police and New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
