Brown, 41, was sentenced in state Superior Court, Morristown by Judge James M. DeMarzo. He must serve 50 months before being considered for parole.

Additionally, the judge terminated Brown from the Morris County Drug Court program and re-sentenced him to a seven-year term of incarceration, 39 months of which must be served without parole. The sentences will run concurrently.

The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Special Enforcement Unit/Narcotics Task Force completed an investigation of Brown’s involvement with distributing cocaine in and around Dover in July of 2016.

Brown was arrested on July 21 after court-authorized warrants were executed and detectives recovered cocaine and other drug paraphernalia from Brown’s residence. He was charged with multiple offenses related to the possession, manufacture and distribution of narcotics.  Brown pleaded guilty on March 20.

Prosecutor Knapp wishes to thank the agencies in Morris County that contributed personnel to the Narcotics Task Force, as well as the Dover Police Department and the Morris County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit.
