Dailey sentenced on drug distribution charges

SoVaNow.com / July 21, 2010
Carlos Dailey, a.k.a. “Bone Crusher,” 39, born in South Hill, raised in Washington, D.C. and Maryland, and most recently residing in Boydton, was sentenced Wednesday to 268 months of imprisonment.

Neil H. MacBride, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, made the announcement after the final sentencing today.

On March 30, Chief United States District Judge James R. Spencer convicted Dailey of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute more than 50 grams of crack cocaine from 2005 through March 2009, and one count of distribution of crack cocaine.

According to the evidence presented at trial, Dailey was supplied one ounce or more quantities of crack cocaine by coconspirators on a weekly basis which he then resold to crack users and lower-level dealers in and around the Boydton and Chase City areas. Dailey often utilized the Boydton home of his coconspirator, Willie Hendren, to store and sell crack cocaine.

The distribution charge arose out of a controlled drug buy the South Side Drug Task Force made from Dailey at Hendren’s house.

Spencer cited the length of the Dailey’s involvement in the conspiracy, the quantity of crack cocaine involved, and Dailey’s prior criminal history as factors in the 22+ year sentence.

Dailey’s criminal history included prior convictions for assault and battery; reckless endangerment (which involved Dailey recklessly firing a shotgun at the front door of a house thereby shooting a woman on the other side of the door in the head); conspiracy to commit murder; malicious destruction of property; and three separate drug possession charges.

Dailey’s coconspirators, Tyrone Davis, Chris Pamplin, Willie Hendren, Mark Dicks, and Danny Farrar, were sentenced earlier this year.

On Feb. 26, Tyrone Davis was sentenced to 300 months of imprisonment, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release, on a firearm charge related to his role as the supplier to this drug trafficking enterprise.

On March 1, Chris Pamplin was sentenced to 188 months of imprisonment and 4 years of supervised release, for his role as a Mecklenburg County distributor of crack cocaine supplied by Tyrone Davis.

On April 12, Danny Farrar was sentenced to 121 months of imprisonment and 5 years of supervised release, for his role as a Mecklenburg County distributor of crack cocaine supplied by Tyrone Davis.

On July 15, Mark Dicks was sentenced to 144 months of imprisonment and 5 years of supervised release for his role as a Mecklenburg County distributor of crack cocaine supplied by Tyrone Davis.

On Feb. 10, Willie Hendren was sentenced to 73 months of imprisonment and 3 years of supervised release for his role in maintaining a residence for Dailey and others to sell, store and use crack cocaine.

Tracey A. Henderson, of Mecklenburg County, but most recently residing in Sanford, N.C., is scheduled to be sentenced on July 23, for her role in transporting crack cocaine for Davis from Davis’s home in Sanford, to Farrar, Dailey, Pamplin, and Dicks, in Mecklenburg County.

The case was the result of an extensive investigation, spanning the last five years, conducted by the Southside Drug Task Force, whose members include officers and agents from the Virginia State Police, Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control, the towns of South Hill, Clarksville, and Chase City, and the Mecklenburg County Sheriff=s Office, as well as agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration. The investigation is continuing and more arrests are anticipated.

Assistant United States Attorney Olivia Hawkins prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States.

The Southside Drug Task Force members are the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, Virginia State Police, South Hill Police Department, Chase City Police Department, Clarksville Police Department, Virginia Alcohol Control Board, and the Mecklenburg County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office.
