4 drug cases settled with plea agreements

July 09, 1995

Four drug cases ended with plea arrangements in Harford Circuit Court this week:

* Tolliver A. White, 29, of the 3800 block of Wabash Ave. in Baltimore pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and was sentenced to 10 years in state prison with all but six months suspended, Circuit Court records showed.

Judge Maurice W. Baldwin Jr. accepted the defendant's guilty plea. He placed White on three years' supervised probation upon his release and ordered him to pay $550 in court costs and attorney fees.

Court records showed Maryland State Police stopped White for speeding on Interstate 95 on Oct. 14 and arrested him after a vehicle search yielded 102 grams of crack cocaine.

* Michael A. Marlowe, 21, of Chatham, Va., was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in prison with all but 20 months suspended after he entered an Alford plea to one charge of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

Judge Stephen M. Waldron accepted Marlowe's Alford plea, meaning that the defendant did not admit guilt but acknowledged it was in his best interest to accept the plea arrangement.

Records show that Marlowe was caught speeding on I-95 on Nov. 17 and that a state police trooper found 176 grams of cocaine in the trunk of his station wagon.

Judge Waldron placed him on three years of supervised probation upon his release. He also ordered Marlowe to pay court costs of $210 and a fine of $700.

* Shai Angela Mason, 23, of the 1200 block of Battery Drive in Havre de Grace was sentenced Thursday to six months in state prison with all but three days suspended, after pleading guilty to one count of possession of cocaine.

Judge Waldron also placed the defendant on two years' supervised probation and ordered her to pay $205 in court costs and a $100 fine.

Court records showed the defendant was arrested March 23 during a raid of an Aberdeen apartment by the Harford County Joint Narcotics Task Force and Aberdeen police. Officers found eight crack cocaine rocks in the Stevens Circle apartment.

* Tracey Maurice Manning, 22, of the 600 block of West Hampton St. in Dillon, S.C., pleaded guilty Thursday to possession with intent to distribute cocaine and was sentenced to 15 years in state prison, with all but two years suspended.

Police records showed that state police caught the defendant speeding on I-95 on March 2. Police discovered 357 grams of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $35,000, in his vehicle.

Judge Waldron ordered the defendant to pay court costs and attorney fees totaling $320 and a fine of $850. He also placed Manning on three years' supervised probation upon his release.
