A 45-year-old Wilmington man was sentenced to nine years in federal prison for intent to distribute crack cocaine, his 10th drug-related conviction, the Department of Justice announced Friday.
Court documents say Ibrahim Sesay sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant multiple times. In a search of his apartment, DOJ said law enforcement officers executing a search warrant found 159 grams of crack cocaine and over $12,000 in "drug proceeds."
The conviction is Sesay's second federal felony conviction in the Delaware district.
Sesay previously pleaded guilty on federal drug trafficking charges for his involvement with the Wilmington-based drug organization known as the “30th Street Crew."
"Sesay made a career out of dealing drugs," David C. Weiss, United States attorney for the District of Delaware, said in a statement. "The sentence imposed highlights the severe consequences individuals can expect to face when making the repeated choice to resort to a life of drug dealing.”
The case was investigated by FBI-Baltimore Division’s Wilmington Resident Office’s Safe Streets Taskforce and the Delaware State Police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jesse S. Wenger prosecuted the case, and Sesay was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge Leonard P. Stark.
