United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on May 6, 2013, Brandon Terrell Davis, 30, of Lincoln, was sentenced to five years in prison for conspiracy to distribute powder cocaine; cocaine base, also known as crack cocaine; and marijuana between January 2007 and May 2012. Following the prison term, Davis will serve four years on supervised release. Davis will also forfeit $2,767 in cash to the United States.
Information provided to law enforcement indicated that between January 2007 and May 2012, Davis was responsible for the distribution of at least 500 grams of cocaine, at least 28 grams of cocaine base, (also known as crack cocaine), and a small amount of marijuana. In April 2008, Davis was contacted on a loud party complaint and was found in possession of small amounts of cocaine and marijuana. In May 2012, a search warrant was served at Davis’s Lincoln apartment. During the search of the apartment and searches of Davis and his co-defendant, Lafayette Dorsey, officers found more than 88 grams (approximately three ounces) of powder cocaine, a small amount of marijuana, digital scales, packaging materials, and a total of $2,767 in cash. Dorsey also pled guilty to the conspiracy charge and was sentenced in March 2013 to five years in prison.
The matter was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force, which includes officers of the Lincoln Police Department, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department.
