Phillip Allan Cash

Thirty-three-year-old Phillip Allan Cash of Maryland has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for six counts of distributing a schedule I or II narcotic, according to the Loudoun County commonwealth's attorney's office.

Loudoun County Circuit Court Judge James P. Fisher also imposed an additional 20 years of suspended penitentiary time during sentencing on Sept. 11.

Undercover detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office contacted Cash in early September 2018 and arranged to purchase cocaine and ecstasy from him. Authorities say Cash sold one detective one ounce of cocaine on six separate occasions, for which the detective paid him a total of $9,240.

Fisher also imposed a $60,000 fine and ordered Cash to pay $9,240 restitution to the LCSO, according to county officials.

Cash will be placed on five years of supervised probation upon his release from prison.

Over a decade , in prison, for buying coke and x possibly with intent to distribute meanwhile child rapists are getting single digit sentences. Seriously what is going on?

A guy selling death deserves the same, but at least he'll get a 10 year education of how to be better at his trade.


While he clearly was breaking the law, buying a oz on "six separate occasions" seems like they were just running up the score to keep him in jail longer at our tax expense. Good luck getting the money back.
