GAFFNEY MAN RECEIVES 12-YEAR PRISON SENTENCE FOR ILLEGAL DRUG DEAL
A Gaffney man received a 12-year prison sentence today after he admitted to selling $20 worth of crack cocaine to an undercover police informant.
William S. Camp, 35, pleaded guilty to distribution of crack cocaine and distribution of crack cocaine within a half-mile of a park during a hearing at the Cherokee County Courthouse. Camp will serve 85 percent of Circuit Judge Roger Couch’s prison sentence.
The drug deal took place on Jan. 22, 2009 when a sheriff’s office informant approached Camp on Short Peeler Street and completed the transaction. The location is within a half-mile of Azell Robbs Park.
Deputies made audio and video recordings of the transaction. Camp was arrested weeks later as part of a drug round-up.
Assistant Solicitor Kim Leskanic prosecuted the case.
