Posted June 23, 2009

A judge sentenced a Rockingham man to 10 years in federal prison for selling crack, Moore County Sheriff Lane Carter announced Tuesday.

Moore County deputies seized approximately 113 grams of crack cocaine, with an estimated street value of $9,100, during an investigation during the summer of 2008 in Jackson Springs. They charged Marcus Allen Rush, 23, of 991 Ledbetter Road, with possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.

Rush pleaded guilty to the charges on May 14. After his prison sentence is complete, Rush is subject to five years of supervised release.

    The sad fact is that for every individual we incarcerate, two more will pop-up to take his place. Sometimes I feel we need to take China's aproach to the problem and the only cost is that of a single bullet.

    He should have gone to medical school and gotten a prescription pad, then he could medicate people and not get arrested for it...
