Brooklyn Man Admits To Transporting Crack From NYC To Plattsburgh, NY
Sentenced to 27 months in prison
ALBANY, N.Y. - Tyleek Deramus, age 19, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced yesterday to 27 months in prison for possessing crack cocaine with the intent to distribute it.
The announcement was made by Acting United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith, U.S. Drug Enforcement (DEA) Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt of the New York Division and New York State Police Superintendent George P. Beach II.
As part of his guilty plea, Deramus admitted that on October 13, 2016, he transported approximately 47 grams of crack cocaine from New York City to Plattsburgh, New York, intending to sell the crack cocaine in the Witherbee, New York, area.
Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy also imposed a three-year term of supervised release, to begin after Deramus is released from prison.
This case was investigated by the DEA and New York State Police, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Collyer.
