Six Drug Charges Not Prosecuted


By Linda Cicoira
Six drug charges will not be prosecuted against a Northampton man due to insufficient evidence.
Court records show Rovonte L. Rogers, 23, with addresses at Madame CJ Walker Lane and Banneker Road in Exmore, was indicted on six drug offenses on May 11. An order not to prosecute the indictments was entered in court records Nov. 14. He had been accused of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute dibutylone (an amphetamine) possession with intent to distribute more than a half-ounce and less than five pounds of marijuana and conspiracy to distribute the three drugs. Those offenses occurred in 2018.
In August, Rogers was sentenced to five years in prison for distribution of cocaine in 2017.
All but 10 months of the term was suspended.
