Annapolis, MD — Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams announced today that Kevin Lamont Scott, 36, of Glen Burnie, was sentenced by Judge William C. Mulford, II to 25 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a firearm in the commission of a drug trafficking crime, and related charges.
“Anyone profiting from the sale of illegal substances can expect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams. “I’m grateful to Judge Mulford for holding this dealer accountable and removing him from our streets.”
On March 1, 2017, Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Eastern District Tactical Narcotics Unit and Tactical Patrol Unit executed a search warrant at Scott’s residence in Glen Burnie. Scott indicated to police which bedroom belonged to him. Upon searching the room, police recovered a Smith and Wesson revolver, marijuana, a digital scale, and Ziploc bags. Police then recovered heroin from the bathroom of the residence.
An Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury found Scott guilty of possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a firearm in the commission of a drug trafficking crime, and related charges on August 11, 2017.
Maryland sentencing guidelines recommended a sentence between 12 to 20 years of active incarceration. Scott was sentenced to 20 years for possession with intent to distribute, followed by 5 years without parole for possession of a firearm in the commission of a drug trafficking crime.
Judge William C. Mulford, II presided over the case. Assistant State’s Attorney Marot Hoskins prosecuted the case on behalf of the citizens of Anne Arundel County.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
