City cocaine dealer sentenced to 16 years

May 03, 2008

A 30-year-old Baltimore cocaine dealer was sentenced yesterday to more than 15 years in federal prison, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

After ordering the 188-month prison sentence, U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles Jr. also directed that Barry Henderson serve five years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, according to federal prosecutors.

Henderson -- also known as "Mook" -- received an "enhanced" sentence after Quarles determined that he was a "career criminal" based on three previous convictions related to drugs and handgun possession, prosecutors said.

Henderson was arrested in October in the 1300 block of E. Lanvale St., and law enforcement officers recovered 27 grams of cocaine, almost $3,200 in cash, a digital scale and drug packaging materials, according to prosecutors.
