Estate St. George Man Convicted of Crack Possession

Nov. 27, 2006 — Ronald Julien, 39, of Estate St. George, was convicted Nov. 21 by a federal jury of one count of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.
Julien is in custody while awaiting sentencing, according to a Monday news release from the U.S. Attorney's office. He was caught with nine grams of crack cocaine, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney James Carroll.
He faces a maximum of up to 40 years in jail and a fine of up to $250,000. The minimum sentence is five years in jail.
Julien, a taxi driver, was caught Feb. 15 when he arranged a drug sale between an undercover agent and his co-defendant in the case. Department policy prevents him from releasing the co-defendant's name, Carroll said.
"He was a cooperating witness," Carroll said. The co-defendant pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.
