WILMINGTON — Booker T. Jordan, 28, of Wilmington, pleaded guilty Tuesday in New Hanover County Superior Court to one count of trafficking cocaine, and one count of possession with intent to sell a schedule 1 narcotic.

Judge Jay D. Hockenbury sentenced Jordan to a minimum of 35 months and a maximum of 42 months in the North Carolina Department of Adult Corrections, with a mandatory $50,000 fine in accordance with statutory guidelines.

According to the office of District Attorney Ben David, evidence presented in court showed that narcotics detectives with the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office stopped Jordan for a window tint violation on Highway 421 in December 2016.

Detectives conducted a canine search, which after an alert, revealed a book bag in the back seat containing $215 in cash, 60.27 grams of cocaine and 7.44 grams of MDMA, or ecstasy.

The District Attorney’s Office said that this was not the first time the defendant was in trouble for trafficking narcotics.

“This defendant has been convicted for trafficking narcotics before in New Hanover County,” Assistant District Attorney Brad Matthews said. “It is important for our office to aggressively prosecute repeat offenders such as this.”

District Attorney Ben David added that, “The possession and distribution of mass amounts of narcotics will not be tolerated in this community and offenders of such crimes will continue to be brought firmly and swiftly to justice.”

Narcotics detectives with the Wilmington Police Department investigated this case. The state was represented by Assistant District Attorney Brad Matthews, and the defendant was represented by attorney Julia Olson-Boseman.
