A Dover NJ man was recently sentenced to nine years in state prison for distributing cocaine from his home.
The suspect is a 41-year-old male resident of Dover, New Jersey. However, he will be residing in NJ State Prison for the next few years.
The suspect was placed under arrest in summer 2016 after law enforcement reportedly found him manufacturing and distributing crack cocaine in Dover, NJ.
According to authorities, the suspect was selling crack cocaine out of his residence on Parker Street in Dover, New Jersey.
The Dover Police Department and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Special Enforcement Unit and Narcotics Task Force investigated the suspect and eventually placed him under arrest. He was subsequently charged with a number of drug crimes, including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
The suspect ultimately avoided trial in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown by reaching a plea deal with Morris County prosecutors.
Now the suspect has been officially sentenced to a term of incarceration of nine years in New Jersey State Prison. He will not become eligible for release on parole until after serving a minimum of 50 months behind bars.
At the time of the suspect’s arrest in Dover last year, he was reportedly participating in the Morris County Drug Court program.
