Frederick man gets 10 years for selling cocaine

November 13, 1997

A former Mount Airy man who pleaded guilty in August to two counts of selling cocaine to undercover police officers in Westminster was sentenced to 10 years without parole yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court.

Richard A. Tyler, 26, who now lives in Frederick, was arrested on similar charges in Frederick three days after pleading guilty Aug. 5 before Judge Luke K. Burns Jr., court records show.

Burns also reinstated four-year terms on each of two drug-related convictions for which Tyler was placed on probation after receiving suspended sentences in 1993.
