Gerald Jones sentenced to 10 years in prison for distributing crack cocaine

Chief U.S. District Judge Benson E. Legg sentenced Gerald Jones,
age 36, of Hagerstown today to 10 years in prison followed by five
years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and
possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, announced United
States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.

According to his guilty plea, during 2006 and 2007, Jones was a

purchased the cocaine in New York and sold it to others in New York
and Hagerstown.

Enforcement Administration, the Hagerstown Police Department and
the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for their investigative work in
this Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case, and
