Resident Superior Court Judge Josh Willey presided over this trial term of court, and the cases were prosecuted in court by Assistant District Attorney David Spence.

DANIEL SANGABRIEL, 31, of Newport, pled guilty to Trafficking in Methamphetamine. Carteret County Sheriff’s Office investigators obtained a search warrant to search Sangabriel’s residence in Newport, and they located approximately 69 grams of methamphetamine, 40 grams of suspected cocaine, and small amounts of marijuana and pills. Sangabriel also had an AR-15 and a handgun in the residence. Sangabriel lived at the residence with his 7-year-old daughter, who was not present at the time of the search. He admitted obtaining trafficking-level quantities of meth from his supplier, and admitted delivering cash to his supplier which resulted from his sales. Judge Willey sentenced Sangabriel to a prison term of 70 to 93 months.

DONALD FRANCIS REID, JR., 40, of Morehead City, pled guilty to three counts of Sale of Heroin, and one count of Sale of Oxycodone. Morehead City Police Department used an undercover informant to purchase the drugs from Reid on four occasions. All of the sales occurred in Morehead City, and laboratory testing confirmed that the heroin that Reid sold also contained fentanyl. Judge Willey sentenced Reid to a prison term of 34 to 60 months, and when Reid is released, he will be on supervised probation. If his probation is revoked, he will have to serve an additional 38 to 64 months.
