Prosecuting Attorney Jason Holdren announces the sentencing of Marquez McGhee, age 23, of Detroit, Michigan.
“Today, Judge Margaret Evans sentenced Mr. McGhee to prison for 30 months for violating the terms of his community control,” stated Holdren.
In February of 2016, McGhee was found guilty of Possession of Drugs and placed on community control through the Gallia County Common Pleas Court with a suspended prison term of 30 months.
In November of 2016, McGhee was staying in Kanawha County, West Virginia, when his apartment was raided by the Metro Drug Unit for suspected drug trafficking.
McGhee was arrested for selling drugs in close proximity to a school, which violates the terms of his community control in Gallia County.
“Mr. McGhee’s continued drug dealing finally caught up with him. Prison is the only option for dealers from Detroit that are looking to set up shop in our area,” added Holdren.
