Mercer County Man Sentenced To 92 Months In Prison For Cocaine Distribution Conspiracy

TRENTON, N.J. – A Trenton man was sentenced today to 92 months in prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute more than a kilogram of cocaine and crack cocaine in the Trenton area, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Bobby Williams, 38, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Michael A. Shipp to Count One of a superseding indictment charging him with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and to manufacture, distribute, and possess with intent to distribute 28 grams or more of cocaine base. Judge Shipp imposed the sentence today in Trenton federal court.

According to the documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

From September 2013 through his arrest on Jan. 13, 2016, Williams conspired with co-defendants Khalfini Richardson, William Enmond and Capitol T. Wellons to distribute cocaine and manufacture and distribute crack cocaine primarily from two adjacent residences in Trenton.

At his plea hearing, Williams admitted conspiring to distribute a total of 1.72 kilograms of cocaine and 82.9 grams of crack cocaine.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Shipp sentenced Williams to five years of supervised release.

Enmond entered a guilty plea and was sentenced on July 20, 2017, to 60 months in prison. Richardson and Wellons both pleaded guilty and were sentenced February 21, 2018, to 156 months and 84 months, respectively, in prison.

U.S. Attorney Carpenito credited special agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Valerie A. Nickerson in Newark, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Molly Lorber and Joseph Gribko of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Trenton.
