Man sentenced to prison for drug offenses, child endangerment

A man who pleaded no contest to drug, weapons and child endangerment charges was sentenced today to 19 years in state prison.

Corey Anderson, 32, pleaded to charges of transporting cocaine, cocaine sales, being a felon in possession of a firearm and child endangerment, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney's office news release. He also admitted to a prior drug sales conviction, a prior strike and an out-on-bail enhancement. He was sentenced by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Kevin McCormick.

On Aug. 24, 2012, Corey Anderson and his brother, Cushi Anderson, were pulled over in a vehicle stop. A search of the car revealed more than 27 grams of cocaine, 2 pounds of marijuana, $2,000 in cash and narcotics sales paraphernalia, officials said.

On Sept. 13, 2012, a search warrant was executed at the home Corey Anderson shared with his girlfriend and her 5-year-old child. Inside the residence, detectives found 124.6 grams of cocaine, 20.43 grams of black tar heroin, 1,076.69 grams of marijuana, 21 grams of Ecstasy, a loaded .25 caliber handgun and narcotics sales paraphernalia. Officials said all the drugs were accessible to the child.

According to Sacramento Superior Court online records, Cushi Anderson pleaded no contest to possession of a controlled substance for sale and was sentenced in June to 365 days in a sheriff's work project and five years probation.
