Wicomico Co. Woman Sentenced To Six Years For Oxycodone

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A Wicomico County woman has been sentenced on drug charges. On Monday, 36-year-old Loretta Phillips, was convicted of possession with intent to distribute Oxycodone.

This conviction stems from December 4th, 2013, when Phillips was stopped by a Maryland State Police Trooper for a traffic violation. During the stop the Trooper found oxycodone (15mg and 30mg) and more than $370 in cash, in Phillip's purse. An investigation revealed that Phillip's cell phone had numerous text messages about the illegal sale of Oxycodone.

Phillips was sentenced by a judge to 15 years, with all but 6 years suspended in the Department of Corrections.

Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew Maciarello commented that the abuse of heroin and semi-synthetic opioids, such as oxycodone ("Oxy"), impacts the quality of life of the citizens of Wicomico County so substantially that illegal distribution of these substances will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted. Anyone with questions or concerns about addictions, are encouraged to call the Wicomico County Health Department addictions counselors  at 410-742-DRUG (3784).
