U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Donald Evans, age 22, of Pikeville, North Carolina, today to 97 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to
manufacture and distribute methamphetamine, announced United
States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
Judge Quarles also ordered that Evans pay $3,006.47 in restitution
and forfeit the 12 gauge shotgun found in the motel room where he
and his co-conspirators were staying.
According to his plea agreement, on June 8, 2006, Evans, Valerie
James and Thomas Roman acquired items to manufacture four
ounces of methamphetamine, and would have done so in the Super
8 Motel in Edgewood had they not been apprehended by officers of
the Harford County Sheriff’s Department. A loaded Mossberg 12
gauge shotgun was also found in the motel room.
Valerie James, age 26, of Goldsboro, North Carolina, and Thomas
Roman, age 28, of Raeford, North Carolina, previously pleaded
guilty to the conspiracy. James was sentenced to six years
imprisonment on January 31, 2007 and Roman to nine years
imprisonment on April 4, 2007.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the investigative
work performed by the Drug Enforcement Administration and
Harford County Sheriff’s Department. Mr. Rosenstein thanked
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gregory Welsh and Christopher J. Romano,
who prosecuted the case.
