RALEIGH—United States Attorney Thomas G Walker announced that in federal court yesterday, United States District Judge Terrence W Boyle sentenced GALVIN JERRELL MITCHELL, 28, of Enfield, North Carolina, to 57 months’ imprisonment followed by five years’ supervised release.
A federal grand jury returned a superseding criminal indictment on August 10, 2011. At his arraignment on January 20, 2012, MITCHELL, also known as G-Baby, pled guilty to conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 280 grams or more of cocaine base (crack) and 500 grams or more of cocaine.
According to the investigation, MITCHELL was identified as a “broker” and “drug runner” for illegal drug trafficking in the Enfield, North Carolina, area. From December, 2008, to September, 2009, it was learned that MITCHELL was responsible for distributing 3,928 grams of powder cocaine and 795 grams of crack cocaine.
Investigation of this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Glenn Perry was the assigned prosecutor.
Mr Perry is a prosecutor with the Pitt County District Attorney’s Office. District Attorney Clark Everett has assigned him to the United States Attorney’s Office to prosecute federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force criminal matters. This has been made possible by a grant funded by the Governor’s Crime Commission.
