City man gets 21 years in cocaine scheme

A 41-year-old Baltimore man received a federal prison sentence of more than 21 years yesterday for his role in a conspiracy to sell cocaine. Terrence Moody earlier pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine, 50 grams of crack cocaine and an undisclosed amount of heroin, according to prosecutors.

Two of Moody's co-defendants, Larry Yarrall, 30, and Lashavio Gilliam, 37, both of Baltimore, were also sentenced in U.S. District Court yesterday to more than 12 years and more than 10 years in prison, respectively. Both also pleaded guilty earlier.

In all, 17 defendants have pleaded guilty in connection with the operation of a street organization in East Baltimore and sale of wholesale quantities of drugs throughout Baltimore.
