He could get up to 85 years in prison.
A Frederick man was convicted Friday afternoon on eight counts involving drug trafficking and weapons possession. A jury found Coryea Dominique Webster, 21, guilty of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime, possession of cocaine, possession of 1-benzylpiperazine (BZP), possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, illegal possession of a rifle and access by a minor to a loaded firearm. The conviction followed two days of testimony.
Circuit Court Judge Theresa Adams revoked Webster's bond and deferred sentencing until a pre-sentence investigation is completed. The Frederick County State's Attorney's office says Webster could get a total of 85 years in prison, with five years that he has to serve without parole.
Authorities say it all began on April 27, 2012, when Maryland State Police served three warrants at Webster's home on Key Parkway, charging him with being a fugitive from Ohio on a concealed weapons felony, failing to appear in Frederick County Circuit Court for being a felon in possession of a firearm, and failing to appear in Frederick County Circuit Court for driving without a license.
After noticing a rifle in plain view, troopers secured another warrant. Authorities say Webster's 1-year-old son was present and had access to the weapon. They confiscated multiple rounds of ammunition, a razor blade, a digital scale, plastic bags containing cocaine, and one plastic bag containing marijuana.
During the trial, the State of Maryland was represented by Drug and Gang Prosecutor Jason Shoemaker, and Webster's attorney was David Kindleman, Esq.
