Marcel F. Young Press Release

     Cape & Islands’ District Attorney Michael O’Keefe announced that on September 25, 2015 Marcel F. Young (DOB: 09/19/1977) of Marstons Mills, was found Guilty by a Barnstable County Superior Court jury of Possession with the Intent To Distribute a Class B substance, Cocaine (M.G.L. c. 94C section 32A (b)), and Possession of a Class A substance, Heroin (M.G.L. c. 94C section 34). The defendant then admitted guilt to being a subsequent offender for the Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B substance Cocaine, and was found guilty of this charge because of the defendant’s prior conviction for a Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B substance Cocaine.  The defendant was sentenced on September 28, 2015 by the Honorable Judge Robert Rufo, for a period of 4 years to 4 years and a day committed MCI Cedar Junction for the Possession with the Intent to Distribute Cocaine, subsequent offense, and received a 2 years committed sentence concurrent for the Possession of Heroin conviction.

     The charges resulted from an incident occurring on March 30, 2013 in Hyannis.  While on surveillance for a different investigation, undercover police officers observed the defendant sitting in a parked car in the parking lot of a Betty’s Pond Road apartment complex.  The officers observed through the car window the defendant hand baggies of drugs to the front seat passenger.  The police demanded that the defendant hand over the drugs, which he did.  Those baggies contained heroin.  In his sweatshirt pocket the defendant had several baggies of cocaine packaged in a manner consistent with distribution of that drug.

     The case was prosecuted by Second Assistant District Attorney Sharon J. Thibeault and investigated by the Barnstable Police Department.
