MURDER USA: Ex-con and convicted drug-dealer/armed robber Coron Demon Johnson, aka “Savage” Indicted For Dealing Heroin Resulting In Fatal Overdose of Junkie
GREENBELT, MD. – A federal grand jury has indicted ex-con armed robber and drug dealer Coron Demon Johnson a/k/a “Savage,” 23, of Baltimore, Maryland, on charges of Distribution of a Controlled Substance with Death Resulting. The indictment was returned on February 21, 2018, and unsealed upon the arrest of Johnson on March 20, 2018.
The indictment was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Stephen M. Schenning; Special Agent in Charge Karl C. Colder of the Drug Enforcement Administration – Washington Field Office; and Chief Henry P. Stawinski III of the Prince George’s County Police Department.
According to the indictment, on August 11, 2017, Johnson, of 1107 Wicklow Road, Baltimore, Md., allegedly distributed heroin to an individual, which resulted in an overdose death in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
Johnson faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years with a maximum sentence of life in prison if found guilty.
Johnson faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years with a maximum sentence of life in prison if found guilty. Johnson had his initial appearance in front of United States Magistrate Judge Timothy Sullivan in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt on March 19, 2018.
Johnson entered into a plea deal with the Baltimore County States Attorney Scott Shellenberger on Feb. 12, 2015, when he was indicted by the Baltimore County Grand Jury on charges of armed robbery, robbery, attempted first-degree murder, first and second-degree assault, theft, use of a firearm in a violent crime and use of a firearm by a convicted felon. THE DEAL: Johnson entered a guilty plea to only one of the 16 counts, that of armed robbery. Johnson was sentenced to 18 months in jail, meaning that he could skip the nasty environment of the state prison and serve his time in the Hotel Baltimore Country Club.
According to court records, Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge Cahill allowed Johnson to be released from the county jail on April 28, 2015, as long as he checked in with pre-trial services while his hearing for violating the terms of probation was pending. On Feb. 1, 2016, an order for probation was issued by the court.
Johnson got a sweet deal from the Anne Arundel County States Attorney on Feb. 20, 2014, when he entered a guilty plea to drug distribution in Anne Arundel Circuit Court. THE DEAL: 18 months in prison with all 18 months suspended. Two years of probation and no fine. This ridiculous outcome is often the result of Johnson snitching on competing drug dealers. The object of his rating on other drug dealers may learn of his actions and retaliate when Johnson ends up in the Federal prison.
What is even more extraordinary is the description of the crime of armed robbery that Johnson pleaded guilty to committing in Baltimore County.
While Johnson got off easy for the armed robbery, his codefendant, Frank James Blackwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 10 years suspended in a plea deal culminated on Dec. 8, 2015.
Randell Joseph entered a guilty plea to the reduced charge of robbery in a plea deal and got five years with all the time suspended, but the time he already served, along with probation for two years. Joseph managed to violate his probation twice, in spite of the great deal he received from the prosecutor. On the last time, on June 7, 2016, a bench warrant was issued with no bail allowed, according to an order from Judge Cahill.
This is the original report from Baltimore County Police:
