District Court Judge Robert A. Molloy on Thursday sentenced Aubrey Frett, 31, to 18 months incarceration on his conviction for possession of marijuana and crack cocaine with intent to distribute, U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.
Molloy also ordered Frett to serve three years of supervised release and to pay a $1,000 fine, plus $200 as a special assessment.
According to the trial record, members of the Virgin Islands Police Department were seeking to execute an arrest warrant on Frett when they spotted him under a carport in the area of Hospital Ground. A chase ensued and officers noticed Frett discard an object over a fence. A search of the area discovered a firearm linked to Frett. Officers apprehended Frett and discovered baggies of marijuana and a vile containing crack cocaine.
On Jan. 24, a St. Thomas federal jury convicted Frett of the marijuana and crack cocaine offenses.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Virgin Islands Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Everard E. Potter.
