Washington D.C. PCP Dealer Gets 19 Years in Prison

PCPpicThat Sherman Hemsley, aka PCP, got Rashard Wilson in a whole lot of trouble. From August 2011 through February of last year, the 22-year-old dealer was supplying angel dust, crack cocaine and heroin throughout the nation’s capitol and Prince George’s County, according to the indictment against him. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Roger Titus Jr. sentenced Wilson to 235 months in federal prison. Titus enhanced Wilson’s sentence based on four previous convictions against the doper for 2nd degree assault, carjacking, assault on a police officer and possession with intent to distribute PCP.

According to Wilson’s plea agreement, he admitted getting his drugs from a man named Samuel Braxton, who also pleaded guilty. Wilson and other members of the conspiracy used Braxton’s apartment in Temple Hills, Maryland, as a base of operations for storing and distributing narcotics. Wilson often met Braxton at the apartment to obtain drugs. Between November 2011 and January 2012, Wilson and Braxton were overheard by law enforcement using coded language to discuss their drug trafficking activities.

During the investigation, Wilson was stopped by law enforcement in Washington, D.C., after visiting Braxton’s apartment on December 8, 2011,. As Wilson was pulling over, officers saw the front seat passenger throw a white plastic bag out the window. Officers found the bag, which contained two bottles with a total of approximately eight ounces of PCP.

Over the course of the conspiracy, Wilson was responsible for the distribution of between one and three kilograms of PCP, between 28 and 112 grams of crack cocaine, and between 20 and 40 grams of heroin.
