Baltimore Drug Trafficker Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison
BALTIMORE, MD—U.S. District Judge George L. Russell, III, sentenced Stephon Lowery, age 30, of Baltimore, today to 10 years in prison followed by four years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine base.
The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Kevin Perkins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Interim Commissioner Kevin Davis of the Baltimore Police Department; and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby.
According to his plea agreement, from no later than December 2013 through May 2014, Lowery and his co-defendants operated a street-level drug shop in the southwest area of Baltimore City that sold cocaine base daily to customers. Multiple times a day, they ordered crack cocaine from suppliers, ranging in quantities up to 28 grams, which they then sold in user-quantity amounts to street level users.
Lowery admits that he and his conspirators distributed more than 112 grams of crack cocaine.
To date, seven co-defendants have pleaded guilty to their participation in the conspiracy.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the FBI, Baltimore Police Department and Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorneys David I. Sharfstein and Seema Mittal, who prosecuted the case.
