U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz sentenced Curtis Schoolfield
aka “Smoosh,” age 29, of Pocomoke City, Maryland to 138 months
in prison followed by 8 years of supervised release for conspiracy to
distribute crack cocaine, and distribution and possession with intent
to distribute crack cocaine, announced United States Attorney for
the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.
According to testimony at the two day trial, Schoolfield sold 16, 12.9
and 20.3 grams of crack to a government informant on three
separate occasions. On one occasion, he sent his mother to deliver
the crack and collect the money. The jury returned its verdict after
deliberating less than two hours.
On November 8, 2000, Schoolfield was convicted in the Circuit Court
for Worcester County, Maryland, of distribution of crack cocaine and
was sentenced to six years in prison for this conviction, with four
years and six months suspended followed by two years probation.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Worcester
County Drug Task Force for their investigative work in this
Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case. Mr.
Rosenstein thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Welsh, who
prosecuted the case.
