Convicted Delmar Drug Dealer Gets 5 Years in Prison

Posted:
BALTIMORE- A Delmar man convicted of conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine base and cocaine has been sentenced to five years in prison, federal prosecutors announced Friday.

After serving his prison term, 35-year-old David Jesse Hotton will be placed on five years supervised release. He was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

According to his plea agreement, Hotton, who hails from Delmar's Maryland side, conspired with Ranson Chandler Jr., 37, of Salisbury; Tyson Gabriel Hobson Sr., 37, of Princess Anne; and Floyd Lee Sykes, 35, of Quantico, to distribute and possess with intent to distribute large quantities of crack and powder cocaine. Court records show that during their investigation, members of the DEA and the Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force overheard Hotton on many occasions transacting drug deals on his cellphone. For example, in September 2012, Hotton was overheard saying that he just got a kilogram of cocaine and was going to cook up half or so of the powder into crack. Also that month, Hotton was overheard agreeing to sell 2 ounces of cocaine for $3,000.

His plea agreement also shows that Hotton admitted that it was foreseeable that he distributed more than 280 grams of crack cocaine and more than 500 grams of powder cocaine from June 2012 to Nov. 28, 2012.

Chandler, Hobson and Sykes previously pleaded guilty to their participation in the conspiracy, authorities said. Chandler was sentenced to 123 months in prison and Sykes to 46 months in prison. Hobson awaits sentencing.
