Drug dealers sentenced

Two men were sentenced for drug charges in Caroline County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Arthur Shannon Sizer, 31, of Ruther Glen pled guilty to three counts of distributing cocaine. he was sentenced to 75 years with all but 10 years suspended.

Prosecutor Glen Henkle, who will be handling nar cotics cases for the county, presented evidence that ac cused Sizer of distributing cocaine since March 2004. By 2008, Henkle said, Sizer was moving one kilo a month. Sizer had made 400 cocaine sales in Caroline in 2008, according to Henkle’s evidence.

Authorities considered Sizer to be a big-time drug dealer in the county and said he was at or near the top of a cocaine distributing ring with sources from New York to Richmond.

Next month, Sizer will face a judge in Caroline again for possession of a firearm by a felon.

Kenneth Eugene Crutchfield of Woodford, who was said by authorities to be a lower-level dealer under Sizer, was given two life sentences with all but seven years suspended.

He was convicted of conspiring to distribute cocaine and distributing cocaine— his third offense.

Henkle is seeking to unsuspend time suspended in his other convictions.
