Rowan County man gets more than 7 years in federal prison for fentanyl distribution
He was also ordered to serve an additional seven-month sentence for the supervised release violation.
According to authorities, 33-year-old Jorod Young was released from federal prison in May 2019 after serving more than three years from a previous Rowan County case.
In October 2019, while on supervised release, detectives with the RCSO special investigation unit said they began making undercover buys of heroin/fentanyl from Young.
In conjunction with the United States Attorney’s Office, Young was arrested by Rowan County authorities.
On Monday, Young was sentenced in the U.S. District Court in Greensboro to an 87-month active sentence for distribution of fentanyl and maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of distribution, a news release stated.
Young was also ordered to serve an additional seven-month sentence for the supervised release violation, followed by five years probation at the conclusion of his prison term.
