Sentences Imposed For Charleston West Side Heroin And Crack Dealers

Charleston, W.Va. – Defendants Deandre Coleman, 22, and Jamaal Davis, 23, were sentenced today by U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr., to five years of probation.  Coleman previously pled guilty on January 21, 2014, admitting that on July 9, 2013, he sold a confidential informant working with the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team (“MDENT”), cocaine base, also known as “crack”, for $100.00 at his Roane Street residence.  Davis, who also pled guilty on January 2, 2104, admitted that he sold heroin for $180.00 to the same informant at Coleman’s Roane Street residence on June 13, 2013.

This case is being prosecuted as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs and heroin.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers and heroin in communities across the Southern District.
