He'll also be put on three years supervised release.
A Frederick man was sentenced in US District Court in Baltimore on Friday to 8 years in prison for conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine. Roger Francel Evans, 28, will also be put on three-years supervised release when he gets out. Judge Benson Everett Legg ordered Evans to forfeit $28,000 in cash, and his 2000 Dodge Van as property used to commit the crime.
Federal officials say Evans arranged cocaine transactions. In one instance, on December 11th, 2010, Evans was contacted in Florida by a customer in Hagerstown, and agreed to sell that person narcotics. He told Tyanna Oram to deliver the drugs to the customer in exchange for cash, and wire some of the money to him. Agents watched Oram leave her home, and get into a cab which was to take her to Hagerstown. Authorities stopped the vehicle along I-70, and took Oram into custody. 86 grams of marijuana in 210 containers, 117 grams of crack cocaine in three baggies and $985 in cash were recovered.
In other case, authorities say Evans directed someone to deliver something to the home of his baby's mother, while he was incarcerated at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center. Agents intercepted that delivery, and seized $28,000 in cash from a safe. They also confiscated Evans' Dodge Van which was used for this offense.
Lamont Young, 33, of Frederick, who worked with Evans, has pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy. He is awaiting sentencing. Oram pleaded guilty in Frederick County Circuit Court, and was given a suspended sentence.
In a statement, US Attorney for Maryland, Rod Rosenstein, thanked his staff, the FBI, Maryland State Police, the Immigration and Custom's Enforcement's Baltimore office, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, the Frederick Police Department, and the local State's Attorney's Office for their work in this investigation.
