Worcester Man Sentenced to 14 Years in Drug Case

Worcester, MA... A Worcester man was sentenced late yesterday in federal court for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine and possessing crack cocaine with intent to distribute.

June W. Stansbury, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in New England; United States Attorney Michael J. Sullivan; Colonel Thomas G. Robbins, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; and Gary Gemme, Chief of the Worcester Police Department, announced that EARL MORALES, age 40, of 32 Cedar Street, Worcester, Massachusetts, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge F. Dennis Saylor, IV to 14 years’ imprisonment, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release. Additionally, MORALES faces deportation to his native Jamaica upon completion of his prison sentence.

On May 4, 2005, MORALES pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Distribute Crack Cocaine and Possession of Crack Cocaine with Intent to Distribute.

At the earlier plea hearing, the prosecutor told the Court that, had the case proceeded to trial, the evidence, which included wiretaps on two cellular telephones used by MORALES, would prove that MORALES sold significant quantities of crack cocaine in Worcester. MORALES supervised the sale of his crack cocaine at an apartment occupied by an accomplice and her four children. On July 3, 2003, at the conclusion of the wiretaps, officers involved in the investigation seized over 136 grams of crack cocaine from a secret compartment in MORALES’ Cedar Street apartment.

The accomplice, Nadine Williams, previously pleaded guilty and received a 9 year prison sentence.

The case was investigated by a task force of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Massachusetts State Police and the Worcester Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David Hennessy in Sullivan’s Worcester Office.
