Heroin Dealer Sentenced To 17 Years In Prison

BALTIMORE (AP) — An Annapolis man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for his role in a heroin trafficking ring.

Prosecutors and the FBI announced Tuesday’s sentence for Orlando Antoine Foote, Jr. According to his plea agreement, the FBI intercepted phone calls that revealed Foote, 24, had distributed significant amounts of heroin in Annapolis and other parts of Anne Arundel County. Foote is also heard discussing heroin transactions with co-conspirators, including the price and amount of heroin involved.

His prison sentence will be followed by 10 years of supervised release.

    Let’s see 17 years for distributing heroin that possibly addicted & killed people. He will be out in seven & doing it all over again & still be a young man. He should have gotten life without parole & I’ll bet he had priors. Our system fails us.

    Hey, at least he doesn’t have to worry about the heroin ring anymore, just his O-ring….

  • Steve

    17 years is too light of a sentence.

  • jm

    yeah if he do 7 years. hopefully he comes out and sells sheriff wife some crack or heroin to make her feel better

  • Kay

    We all know this man still has connects. He will be making money while he is on the inside, come out and do it all over agian. Only this time he knows where he went wrong and not make the same mistakes. The system makes criminals smarter (So they think).
