1. Principal in the second degree – distribute a Schedule II substance (namely cocaine) – after having been convicted of a similar charge, hence making this a second or subsequent offense.

In addition, Campbell said Duncan pled guilty to three counts of gang participation arising out of the distribution of Schedule II substance – (namely cocaine).
The court ordered a pre-sentence report, Campbell said, and formal sentencing will be held in January.

Duncan pled guilty to these charges following an investigation by the Halifax/South Boston Regional Narcotics and Gang Task Force, according to Campbell.

“This investigation will continue into the distribution of narcotics and gang activity, and additional arrests are pending,” Campbell said.
