...8TC A Silver Spring man's second drug conviction has landed him a mandatory 10-year sentence with no chance of parole.
Terrence Edward Nolton, 24, was convicted in April of cocaine distribution and conspiracy to violate drug laws. Yesterday, Circuit Judge Eugene M. Lerner sentenced Nolton to 10 years on each of the two counts, the sentences to run concurrently. He was also ordered to enter a drug treatment program while in prison.
Nolton was arrested in May 1990, when a county undercover police detective bought crack cocaine on Pioneer Drive in Severn from a man allegedly working for Nolton. After the detective inquired about buying crack, investigators said, the man walked over to Nolton, then sold the drugs to the detective.
