Victor White, Maxie Sylvester Graham and Durrell Evans sent to federal prison

Three drug dealers charged as part of the EXILE program were
sentenced in federal prison, announced United States Attorney for
the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.

Today, U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Victor
White, age 49, of Randallstown, Maryland, to 294 months in prison,
followed by six years of supervised release for possession with
intent to distribute heroin and cocaine and being a felon in
possession of a firearm, announced United States Attorney for the
District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. Judge Quarles enhanced
White’s sentence upon finding that he is an armed career criminal
based on a prior federal conviction for possession of heroin with
intent to distribute, and prior state convictions for robbery with a
deadly weapon, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and
statutory rape.

According to the testimony at his three day trial, White had been
staying with his girlfriend and was using her residence to package
heroin and cocaine for street distribution. On May 18, 2006, a
search warrant was executed at the residence in the 4000 block of
Amy Lane in Randallstown, Maryland. During the search, officers
recovered distribution quantities of heroin and cocaine, larger
quantities of cutting agents – procaine and mannitol – packaging
materials and implements used in processing drugs for distribution,
over $2100, and two handguns: a Colt, Model 1911, .45 caliber
handgun, and an H&R Arms, .32 S&W caliber revolver. White was in
a bedroom in the residence at the time of the search and all of the
drug evidence and the guns were found in that bedroom. After the
search, White told three police officers that everything recovered
from the residence belonged to him, although when White testified
at trial he denied that the guns and drugs were his and denied that
he had ever told the officers that they belonged to him.

Yesterday, U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz sentenced Maxie
Sylvester Graham, age 26, of Baltimore, Maryland, to 90 months in
prison for conspiracy to distribute more than 100 grams of heroin.
On October 11, 2007, Judge Motz sentenced Durrell Evans, age 21,
also of Baltimore to 10 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute
more than a kilo of heroin.

According to their plea agreements, from January 2004 until
November 2006, Graham and Evans worked with another individual
who ran a heroin distribution business in the Northwest area of
Baltimore. They obtained bulk quantities of heroin on a regular basis
which were packaged in individual vials for street sales. Evans
distributed between one and three kilograms of heroin during this
time, and Graham distributed between 100 to 400 grams of heroin.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked Baltimore City
State’s Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy and Assistant State’s Attorney
Michael Studdard, who assisted with the Graham and Evans case,
the Baltimore City Police Department, Baltimore County Police
Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration for their
assistance in these investigations and prosecutions. Mr. Rosenstein
commended Assistant United States Attorneys Bryan Giblin and
Robert R. Harding, who prosecuted White and Assistant United
States Attorney Greg Welsh, who prosecuted Graham and Evans.
