Wilson man accepts plea deal on federal cocaine charge

A 29-year-old man from Wilson received a sentence of 37 months in prison and a subsequent 6 years of supervised release after pleading guilty to distributing cocaine base. He was already under the supervision of the probation office for the federal court in the Eastern District of North Carolina on a previous cocaine charge when a drug task force arrested him on Sept. 8, 2017.

According to a news release from the U.S. attorney's office, police in Wilson targeted the man after hearing that he had distributed cocaine in the area. The Wilson Police Department acted in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

During interrogation, the man told law enforcement agents that he had been marketing crack cocaine. Within months of his arrest, a 6-count indictment named him as a participant in local drug trafficking. He then entered into a written plea agreement with prosecutors that resulted in his most recent prison sentence.

Before a defendant talks to investigators or accepts a plea deal, the advice of a criminal defense lawyer could improve the outcome. The presence of an attorney during questioning might prevent a person from offering unnecessary information or mistakenly admitting to crimes. Legal counsel could also evaluate evidence to determine the strength of the prosecutor's case. Violations of Constitutional rights or weak evidence provided by an unreliable witness might give an attorney an opportunity to negotiate a favorable plea bargain or even gain a case dismissal. If a case goes to trial, an attorney could strive to build a sympathetic jury and cast doubt on evidence in pursuit of an acquittal.
