Maryland man found guilty of cocaine possession; jury recommends five years

Devon L’Moure Wilerson

A Maryland man is facing up to five years in prison after a Loudoun County jury found him guilty of cocaine possession Monday.

Devon L'Moure Wilerson, 29, will face final sentencing from Judge Jeanette A. Irby on Feb. 26, 2018.

According to the Loudoun County Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney, Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Feb. 1 responded to Ashburn for a report of a suspicious vehicle.  As he approached the vehicle, Deputy D. Ater examined the interior of the vehicle with his flashlight.

Wilkerson, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, quickly began sweeping something off his lap toward the vehicle’s door. When Ater asked if there were any illegal substances in the vehicle, Wilkerson replied that he had cocaine.

Wilkerson reportedly handed over two baggies of cocaine and advised there was additional cocaine on the floor of the vehicle. Wilkerson was arrested and the seized substances were submitted to the Virginia Department of Forensic Science for analysis, where they were determined to be cocaine.

Following the guilty verdict, Senior Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Ryan W. Perry spoke the Wilkerson’s prior criminal record showing convictions for possession of schedule I/II controlled substance, assault and battery, driving while intoxicated, eluding police and attempting to injure a police animal, according to the commonwealth's attorney's office.

The jury fixed Wilkerson’s punishment at five years in prison.

The commonwealth’s motion to revoke Wilkerson’s bond upon his finding of guilt was granted. Wilkerson will be held without bond in the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center pending a final sentencing.
