Dwight Alonzo Hickman (aka Monster), repeat offender, sentenced to 25 years in prison for distributing crack cocaine

U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Dwight AlonzoHickman, also known as “Monster”, age 29, of Baltimore, Maryland, today to 25 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of crack cocaine, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy. Judge Quarles enhanced Hickman’s sentence upon finding that he was a career offender based on two previous drug convictions and two
convictions for assault.

“Dwight Alonzo Hickman is the most recent defendant exiled as a
result of the Violent Repeat Offender program,” said U.S. Attorney
Rod J. Rosenstein. “Local, state and federal authorities work
together as part of the EXILE Violent Repeat Offender Program to
identify dangerous career criminals who are responsible for much of
the drug dealing and violent crime in our neighborhoods. Once we
identify such criminals, we devote the resources necessary to gather
evidence that will put them out of business. Any criminals who
continue to deal drugs or carry guns on the streets of Baltimore may
be future candidates for the Violent Repeat Offender program.”

According to the plea agreement, from May 2005 to January 2007,
Hickman conspired with others to distribute crack cocaine in the
Westport section of Baltimore, Maryland. Hickman and his
conspirators used his home on Sidney Avenue in Baltimore and
other locations in and around Baltimore City to store crack cocaine
for distribution. On June 7, 2006, Baltimore police searched Hickman’
s residence and recovered 40 small glass containers with marijuana;
two plastic bags with approximately 58.78 grams of crack cocaine;
two clear plastic bags each containing 50 orange zip-lock bags with
crack cocaine; a plastic bag containing 13 zip-lock bags with crack
cocaine; numerous empty packaging materials; and a digital scale
with cocaine residue.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein and Baltimore City State’s
Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy thanked the Baltimore City State’s
Attorney’s Office and Assistant State’s Attorney Diana Smith, the
Baltimore City Police Department and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation for their assistance in the investigation and
prosecution. Mr. Rosenstein and Ms. Jessamy commended Assistant
United States Attorney James T. Wallner and Special Assistant U.S.
Attorney James F. Francomano, a cross-designated Baltimore City
Assistant State’s Attorney assigned to EXILE cases, who prosecuted
the case.
