Man sentenced to 20 years under drug kingpin law

February 15, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Harford County Circuit Court judge sentenced Aaron Nathaniel Mathis of Aberdeen to 20 years yesterday for his November drug conviction under the state's drug kingpin law.

The law required prosecutors to prove that Mathis, 31, of the 900 block of Edmund St., supervised, managed and directed a drug organization responsible for the distribution of at least 1 pound of cocaine, according to the Harford County state's attorney's office.

During the trial, prosecutors presented evidence showing that Mathis, with former Aberdeen High School and Pennsylvania State University basketball star Monroe Brown, repeatedly took tens of thousands of dollars worth of powder and crack cocaine into Harford County from New York in spring 1997.
