Description: Fort Smith, AR - The United States of America charged Marc Stovall with possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
Marc Stovall, age 32, was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release on one count of Possession with Intent to Distribute more than 5 Kilograms of a Mixture or Substance Containing a Detectable Amount of Cocaine. The Honorable Judge P. K. Holmes III presided over the sentencing hearing yesterday in the United States District Court in Fort Smith.
In March of 2019, an Arkansas State Police (ASP) Trooper made consensual contact with the driver and passenger of a Nissan Pathfinder while the vehicle was parked at the rest area in Van Buren, Arkansas on Interstate 40. During the consensual encounter, a K-9 was called to the location. After the K-9 alerted on the vehicle, Officers searched it. The search revealed approximately five and one half kilograms of suspected cocaine located inside the rear cargo compartment of the vehicle. The front passenger, later identified as Stovall was interviewed and he advised Officers that the suspected cocaine belonged to him.
Stovall was indicted by a federal grand jury in March 2019 and entered a guilty plea in August 2019.
