Lakeland Cocaine Dealer Sentenced to 10 Years for Cocaine Trafficking

DEC 17 (ORLANDO, Fla.) – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. yesterday sentenced Kesner Joly (53, Lakeland) to ten years in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Joly pleaded guilty on September 3, 2014.

According to court documents, Joly was a kilogram-level cocaine distributor in the central Florida area.  On multiple occasions in 2013, he received cocaine loads from south Florida and distributed them to other cocaine dealers operating in the Middle District of Florida. During the conspiracy, Joly distributed at least five kilograms of cocaine in this fashion. Law enforcement seized a total of four kilograms delivered by Joly, as well as $68,000 from prior cocaine transactions. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. It was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.
