Charleston Dealer Sentenced to Federal Prison
The case was prosecuted as part of the Charleston area’s Drug Market Intervention (DMI) initiative. The DMI initiative was launched in February 2012 by Charleston Police Chief Brent Webster and U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin, in collaboration with other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as leaders representing several West Side community organizations. The DMI initiative was initiated in Charleston as a strategic problem-solving effort aimed at closing down open-air drug markets that breed crimes of violence and disorder. The Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorneys William King and Joshua Hanks handled the prosecution. The sentence was imposed by United States District Judge Thomas E. Johnston.
