At the time of his arrest HUBBARD had 52.2 grams of crack cocaine, 344 grams of cocaine, a digital scale, pans used to cook crack cocaine, and $9,298 in the apartment.

Judge Ponsor scheduled sentencing for January 19, 2005. HUBBARD faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, and a $2 million fine.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Springfield Task Force.
