MADISON – A Madison man faces prison for his role in selling crack cocaine in the Madison area of Boone County. Dwight A. Woods, 27, pled guilty to 3 counts of delivery of a controlled substance before Circuit Judge William S. Thompson.
Woods was indicted by a Boone County Grand Jury last September following an investigation led by Deputy R. B. Dotson of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Dotson used a cooperating individual to make multiple buys of crack cocaine from Woods between May and June of last year, according to court records. In total, Woods delivered 3-and-a-half grams of crack to the cooperating individual for $350, according to the criminal complaint in the case.
Crack cocaine is the freebase form of cocaine that is formed into small rock-like shapes, court officials said. Crack is smoked by its user and is considered the most addictive form of cocaine available, officials added.
Following his guilty plea, Judge Thompson set Woods sentencing for July 31. Woods faces up to 15 years in prison when sentenced.
