Jermaine Dixon, 39, of Brooklyn, New York, was sentenced in United States District Court December 27 in Burlington to serve 14 months in prison after his guilty plea to one count of distribution of cocaine base.
U.S. District Judge Christina Reiss also ordered Dixon to serve a three-year term of supervised release and to pay a $100 special assessment.
According to court records and proceedings, in December 2021, Dixon sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant in the Burlington area on two occasions. On January 7, 2022, law enforcement responded to a residence in Burlington regarding a report of several men fighting.
As police officers approached the residence, a detective on the perimeter of the building observed Dixon lean out of a broken window and throw two baggies onto the roof. The detective retrieved the baggies, which together contained over 50 grams of cocaine base. Dixon was arrested and has been detained since then.
