Paroled killer is sentenced on drug, handgun charges

June 18, 1996|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,SUN STAFF

A Baltimore man on parole for a 1982 murder conviction was sentenced to 20 years in prison yesterday after pleading guilty to heroin and handgun charges in Carroll County Circuit Court.

Under a plea agreement, Lloyd R. Williams Jr., 29, must serve a minimum of 10 years of the 20-year sentence, said Jerry F. Barnes, the Carroll County's state's attorney.

Williams was on parole after serving 13 years of a 30-year sentence in the 1982 murder case. He could have to serve the remaining 17 years if he is convicted of a parole violation stemming from the Carroll County case, Barnes said.

Baltimore prosecutors might request an additional 25-year mandatory sentence because Williams previously was convicted of using a handgun to commit a felony, Barnes said.

Williams was arrested in Finksburg Sept. 24 after police seized two guns, 8.7 grams of heroin and $990 during a routine traffic stop on Route 140.

Tfc. Ronald Cullison said he was suspicious of Williams because he was wearing camouflage clothing and an empty holster. The trooper also saw vials of suspected cocaine in the car.

A passenger, Vincent O. Fleming, also of Baltimore, was sentenced to 15 years in prison with all but five years suspended after pleading guilty to similar charges last week.
