Harrisburg Man Sentenced to 139 Months for Distribution of Crack Cocaine
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that United States District Court Judge John E. Jones sentenced Terrell Hickerson, age 35, of Harrisburg, to 139 months’ imprisonment after Hickerson pleaded guilty in August 2014 to distribution and possession with intent to distribute cocaine base, also known as crack cocaine.
According to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith, as early as the fall of 2012, Hickerson began selling crack cocaine in the Harrisburg area. This conviction represents Hickerson’s third drug trafficking conviction; he was most recently released in September 2011 after serving a 97 month term of imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Capital City Safe Streets Task Force, the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, the Hampden Township Police Department and the Dauphin County Drug Task Force. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom.
