A man found guilty of various drug charges in March was back in court this week on additional charges.
Voltaire Sullivan’s case on charges of possession with intent to distribute Schedule I CDS and introducing contraband into or upon the grounds of any state correctional institution was passed until Sept. 18 for status conference. Status conference has been set for the same date on other charges of possession with intent to distribute Schedule II CDS, possession with intent to distribute Schedule I CDS, convicted felon possession a firearm or carrying a concealed weapon, illegal possession of stolen firearms, possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance and attempted simple escape.
He went before 26th Judicial District Judge Mike Nerren. In March, a jury found Sullivan guilty of three counts of distribution of Schedule II CDS (crack cocaine) and one count of distribution of methamphetamine. He is scheduled for sentencing on these charges June 29.
In March, District Attorney Schuyler Marvin says he intends to “multi-bill him”, which means Sullivan is eligible for the “habitual offender status.”
“I’m looking for a life sentence out of this case,” he said at the time.
Sullivan could receive five to 30 years on each count on the charges for which he was convicted.
