BRUNSWICK COUNTY — United States Attorney Robert J. Higdon, Jr. of the Eastern District of North Carolina announced a Brunswick County man was sentenced to 150 months in prison for crack and cocaine possession and distribution, and violating supervised release for a previous prison sentence.
40-year-old Kevin Brown received a 114-month sentence for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and distribution of 28 grams or more of cocaine base (crack), and a quantity of cocaine and distribution of a quantity of cocaine.
