Greenwood drug dealer sentenced 13 years

Eight Circuit Solicitor David Stumbo announced today that a 29 year-old Greenwood man has been convicted on drug distribution charges and sentenced to 13 years in prison.  On Monday, Sherard Antonio Williams was scheduled for a jury trial on an indictment of Distribution of Crack Cocaine, 3rd offense.   Williams pled guilty as charged to this indictment just prior to the start of the trial on Monday afternoon.  The Honorable Frank R. Addy, Jr. accepted Williams’ plea and sentenced him to immediately begin a 13 year term in state prison.  Because the offense is classified as violent under state law, Williams will have to serve 85% of his sentence before he is eligible for release.

The Greenwood County Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) conducted several controlled buys of crack cocaine with Williams utilizing a confidential informant between July 2012 and April 2013.  These buys occurred at 702 Holloway Avenue in Greenwood.  Based on those controlled drug transactions and William’s prior criminal record, the DEU obtained warrants for distribution crack cocaine, 3rd offense, and executed a search warrant at the 702 Holloway Avenue location on April 10, 2013.  Williams was arrested at the location, and a small quantity of crack cocaine was also found inside the residence.  Williams was released on bond, and was later arrested on charges of failure to stop for a blue light and driving without a license on August 12, 2013.   

Assistant Solicitors Elizabeth White and Micah Black prepared the case for trial.  Solicitor Stumbo praised the work of his assistants in diligently working with Greenwood County DEU agents Josh Hood and Robby Byrd to get this case ready for court. 

"Sherard Williams was a menace to our community in Greenwood, and because of the teamwork between our prosecutors and the Drug Enforcement Unit investigators, Williams will be off the streets for many years to come," said Solicitor Stumbo.  "Along with Sheriff (Tony) Davis and Chief (Gerald) Brooks, I am pleased to have another repeat drug-dealer behind bars and hope that it sends a strong message to those who are spreading this poison around our neighborhoods."
