A Charlottesville man involved in a short car and foot chase after he sold drugs to an informant in July has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
U.S. District Judge Norman K. Moon sentenced Jeffery M. Terry on Monday in Charlottesville’s federal court to the prison term and eight years of supervised release in connection with the July incident.
As part of a plea agreement, Terry, 25, previously pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute 5 grams or more of cocaine and possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime.
An informant for the Jefferson Area Drug Enforcement task force bought drugs from Terry before police tried to arrest him, according to an affidavit filed in court records.
Terry was in a car that didn’t pull over for police, instead driving into a dead-end street where a passenger got out and ran, court records said. Police have said the passenger was Terry.
