A Rocky Mount man faces up to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty Monday to possessing crack cocaine with intent to distribute.
D'Angelo Cortez Witcher, 23, was found with two packets of crack cocaine on his person on Oct. 11, 2013, according to Franklin County Commonwealth's Attorney Tim Allen. He was also in possession of $100 that had been used in a controlled purchase, arranged by the sheriff's office.
Witcher was also charged with conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, but that charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
A controlled buy in a Rocky Mount parking lot on Oct. 11 led investigators to a residence on Greer Lane, where Witcher was found in possession of 1.6 grams and 0.03 grams of crack cocaine, Allen said.
Witcher's bond was revoked and he will remain in jail until his sentencing hearing on May 16 at 9:15 a.m. in Franklin County Circuit Court.
