City man to serve 14 years on drug distribution charge

CUMBERLAND —  A city man was sentenced to a 20-year prison term with six years suspended Tuesday after being convicted in Allegany County Circuit Court of a drug distribution charge.

Allegany County State’s Attorney Michael Twigg announced that Derrick Todd Bray, 26, was sentenced on the charge of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

The charge is the result of the execution of a search and seizure warrant executed in the Cumberland area July 3.

Upon entry into the residence, investigators of the C3I Narcotics Unit discovered crack cocaine and other related materials.

Bray was sentenced to 20 years incarceration within the Maryland Division of Correction, six years of which were suspended.

Upon his release from prison, Bray will be on supervised probation for five years under certain terms and conditions imposed by the court.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Sam Lane. Bray was represented by Cumberland attorney Sean Gallagher. Judge W. Timothy Finan presided over the matter.
