Convicted Drug Dealer Sentenced To Prison

A convicted drug dealer is headed to prison for more than eleven years. The U.S. Attorney's Office says 27-year-old Michael Allsbrook of Ayden in Pitt County has been sentenced in federal court.

Allsbrook pled guilty in February to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute more than five grams of crack cocaine and less than 50 kilograms of marijuana and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Police say they found more than 1,000 grams of marijuana at Allsbrook's home in March 2007. Police say they made several undercover buys from Allsbrook.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Allsbrook's sentence is for 134 months’ imprisonment followed by five years supervised release.

    Cactus Jack,Why you hatin' on me dude? I didn't say he should be released,I said the "Drug war" is A FARCE! The government is releasing drugs on our streets EVERYDAY!! The prison population is over 85% drug charges that YOU are paying to house,feed and medically take care of. How do you like that Cactus man?The cops turn this stuff loose all the time,if you we not locked up in your house affraid to stick your head out maybe you would see some of this going on as I have. It's a little thing called "job security" ever heard of it? The U.S. government is all about it. They shoud stop the farce called "The Drug War" and legalize all this crap,tax it and use the money they allocate for the so called "DrugWar" to help people who actually do have a drug problem and want rehabilitation. Don't be blind or stupid, do you know how many jobs would be lost if they actually got all the drugs off of our streets? Don't try buddy, you can't count that high.

    The reason he got so much time is because it is federal court.They don't screw around like NC courts. He will have to serve day for day in fed prison, no early release.

    11 years is VERY unreasonable! Its crazy you get more time for selling drugs than murder!!!! Besides he didn't even get caught with alot of drugs. He was only a street level dealer. COME ON JUDGE!!!!

    They probably sold him the weed then busted him w/ it trying to sell it to another cop. Have seen this happen. It's all about the revanue moneys that the drugs create. ya'll know it's true,not saying he's right for doin' it,I'm just sayin'! The american drug war is a farce!

    What happened to the drug dealer that was allowed to walk out of prison? Has he been caught?

    I'm probably more liberal than Rich or MrT (I voted for Barack Obama) but I agree totally with them. This dude made his own choice to do what he did; let him serve every minute.

    This guy is done. Most likely no descent paying job anymore.
  • by Rich Location: Greenville on Jul 13, 2009 at 08:21 AM
    I do too, MrT. Now lets wait and see how long it takes someone to make an excuse for him or scold us for saying we hope he serves his full sentence.

    Good. I hope he has to serve every minute of it.
