The first count against him charges on April 16 of last year, having already been convicted of a crime punishable by a prison term of more than one year, he knowingly possessed a firearm in violation of United States Code.The third count charges he possessed a firearm in the furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
The count to be dismissed, Count 2, charges he knowingly and intentionally possessed cocaine with the intent to distribute
Boyle set sentencing for the court’s August 7 term at a time and location to be determined later.
He was remanded back to federal custody.
The federal charges against him stem from his arrest last year on Dickens Avenue outside Roanoke Rapids where City County Drug Task Force agents found 36 bindles of heroin.
