Akron man sentenced to prison for selling cocaine

Chuck Biedka

A former Akron, Ohio, man was sentenced in federal district court Pittsburgh to serve more than 17 years in prison for selling large amounts of cocaine.

Adolph Brown, 48, was sentenced to serve 17 ½ years in prison following his conviction of possession with intent to distribute more than a pound of cocaine.

Brown was sentenced by U.S. Judge Reggie B.Walton.

Prosecutors alleged Brown traveled from Akron to Farrell, Mercer County, to complete the sale of cocaine.

When Brown’s car was pulled over, cocaine was found inside a child’s car seat in the back seat, prosecutors said.

At the time of the traffic stop, Brown was awaiting sentencing in Summit County, Ohio, following his guilty plea to state heroin and cocaine trafficking charges.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
