Sikeston man says he sold cocaine

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

CAPE GIRARDEAU -- A Sikeston man pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to one count of distribution of cocaine base.

Michael S. Sheron, 32, entered the plea, before U.S. District Judge Jean C. Hamilton. Sheron is scheduled to be sentenced May 22 and he could face up to 40 years imprisonment and a $2 million fine followed by four years on supervised probation.

With his plea, Sheron admitted he sold 16.3 grams of crack cocaine to a confidential informant for $450 on July 25.

Also sentenced in federal court Monday was a 31-year-old Caruthersville man to more than seven years in prison for illegally possessing four guns.

Deon Wilson of Caruthersville received an 87-month sentence for one felony count of possession of firearms by a felon.

During an execution of a state search warrant for Wilson's home on Sept. 8, four firearms and several rounds of ammunition were found. Wilson is not allowed to possess firearms due to a previous conviction.
