Career criminal ENOCH EDISON sentenced to 20 years in prison

U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis sentenced Enoch Edison, age
47, of Baltimore today to 20 years in prison followed by five years of
supervised release for possession with the intent to distribute crack
cocaine, announced United States Attorney for the District of
Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Davis enhanced Edison’s
sentence upon finding that he is a career offender based on five
prior narcotics and battery convictions.

“Enoch Edison was a typical career criminal, a man for whom an
occasional arrest is just a temporary lull in a life of drug dealing and
violent crime,” said United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “We
are working with our partners to make the streets of Baltimore more
safe by putting the career criminals behind bars.”

According to his guilty plea, members of the DEA Mobile
Enforcement Team and Baltimore City Police Department searched
Edison’s residence on March 27, 2007, having previously observed
Edison engaged in several drug transactions. They recovered a
back pack in a bathroom ceiling which contained: $5,140; a loaded
Bersa Mini-Firestorm .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol; additional
ammunition; 174 grams of crack cocaine, 63.6 grams of cocaine and
3.5 grams of marijuana; and a digital scale and drug packaging
materials.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Drug
Enforcement Administration and the Baltimore City Police
Department for their investigative work, and commended Assistant
United States Attorney A. David Copperthite, who prosecuted the
case.
