A 46-year-old man was sentenced to 110 months of imprisonment for distributing cocaine within 1,000 feet of a playground on Wed, May 29.

The man was identified as Jeffrey Rowell, also known as Darnell Stinnette. 

A federal grand jury convicted Rowell after several days of trial on Feb 5. 

According to court documents, Rowell sold the drugs to an undercover police officer for $40.

As they were arresting Rowell, police found an additional 5.84 grams of methamphetamine in a small bag he was carrying. 

Rowell has an extensive criminal history — including theft, battery, domestic violence and state convictions on the mainland for assault.
