RALEIGH, NC (WECT) – A man from Wilmington was sentenced in federal courtroom in Raleigh Thursday for drug-related charges.
Titus Grady pleaded guilty earlier this year to several charges and will now spend up to 26 years in jail.
"Titus Grady sentence today is just one more reminder to the gang members that we are going to use what recourses are available to get maximum justice against them," said District Attorney Ben David.
David said they are carefully choosing the venue in which these cases are heard. His goal is to choose a location that will give "the most time against these members that are wreaking the most violence in this area."
"If it's a drug or gun case, crime of violence, we will take them federally or through the state court to make sure they spend decades in prison," said David.
Grady was charged in 2012 for communicating threats, possession with intent to sell and deliver drugs, among other related charges. When he was arrested in February 2012, he had already had warrants on file for making direct threats on law enforcement officers.
