Crack Cocaine Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court

Abraham Alfonia Malone, 58, of Mobile, was sentenced in federal court this morning on three counts of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.  Malone had been convicted in 2003 for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine and sentenced to 120 months custody.  He was released in 2011 to an eight-year term of supervised released, and was arrested in February of 2014 on the new charges.  Malone pled guilty to the three new counts in May of 2014.

United States District Court Judge William H. Steele conducted a hearing on the petition to revoke Malone’s supervised release term in connection with the sentencing hearing on the new charges.  Judge Steele ordered Malone’s supervised release term revoked, and imposed a sentence of 51 months imprisonment.  He also imposed a 24-month term of imprisonment on the new charges, but ordered that the sentences on the new charges would run consecutively to the sentence for the supervised release violation.  Accordingly, Malone will serve a total of 75 months in custody.  Judge Steele ordered that Malone serve another term of supervised release at the conclusion of his custody sentence, this time for six years.  No fine was imposed, but the judge ordered that Malone would pay $300 in special mandatory assessments.

The case was investigated by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office.  It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney=s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
