MONTGOMERY POLICE BEAT: St. Mary’s Drug Dealer Faces Drug Distribution Charges
ROCKVILLE, MD. – In spite of active warrants for his arrest in Maryland, a District Court Judge allowed an accused drug dealer to be released on bond posted by his mother.
ANTAR ISAIHA CHRISTMAS, 22, (DOB 05/29/1997) of 48070 Windward Circle, Lexington Park, Md., was charged on Sept. 12, 2019, with possession with the intent to distribute drugs by Montgomery County Police Officer A. Bachofsky. Christmas was loaded with more than ten grams of pot and a concealed deadly weapon and for some reason known only to him, refused to identify himself to police. Shalonda Venita Christmas posted his bond to spring him from the slammer. Christmas failed to appear on traffic charges in Prince Georges County, Md. when cited by Maryland State Trooper Paul Nield.
Antar Isaiha Christmas was indicted by the Prince Georges County Grand Jury on Sept. 25, 2018, with illegal possession of a firearm – a valuable piece of equipment for any self-respecting drug thug – transport of a gun on a roadway, possession of drugs other than marijuana such as cocaine or heroin, and carrying a handgun. Christmas posted bond on Nov. 20, 2018.
On March 15, 2019, before Prince Georges County Circuit Court Judge Green, Christmas withdrew his not guilty plea and in a plea deal between his free taxpayer-provided attorney and the PG County States Attorney Aisha Braveboy, entered a guilty plea. On that same date, before Judge Green, Christmas was ordered to write a three-page letter within 30 days, perhaps explaining that he was remorseful and promise to lead a law-abiding life and stop selling drugs and packing heat. Somehow, Christmas failed to send the love letter to the Judge and a bench warrant for his arrest was ordered on June 7, 2019. On July 17, 2019, Christmas asked to have the warrant recalled and the request was denied.
Prince Georges will have to find him, as an inept District Court Commissioner in Montgomery County allowed him to be released on his newest drug-dealing charges
Prince Georges will have to find him, as an inept District Court Commissioner in Montgomery County allowed him to be released on his newest drug-dealing charges. Maybe that bozo District Court Commissioner doesn’t have a computer in his office. Christmas has yet to be sentenced after pleading guilty to the drug and gun charges in PG County.
Christmas entered a guilty plea to having a gun on his person in a plea deal with Anne Arundel County States Attorney Wes Adams on March 6, 2018, in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. THE DEAL: in return for his guilty plea which saved Adams from having to put on a trial, charges of possession of a stolen gun, possession of a gun by a minor, illegal possession of a gun were all dropped. Christmas was sentenced to 548 days in jail with all but 149 days suspended. On Sept. 10, 2019, Christmas failed to appear, and another bench warrant was issued for his arrest to be held without bond – which apparently means nothing to the District Court Commissioner in Montgomery County. Welcome to the Alice in Wonderland Maryland Judiciary.
