Clover Man Sentenced For Cocaine Convictions

A 32-year-old Clover man was sentenced Monday in Halifax County Circuit Court to a total of 10 years in prison for each of four cocaine distribution convictions.

The court sentenced Jason Ernest Moss to 10 years in prison for four drug-related convictions, each for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, with all time suspended but completion of the Detention and Diversion center programs.

The court ordered the suspended portion of Moss’ sentence be conditioned on his good behavior for 40 years and ordered him placed on probation for two years, in addition to suspending his operator’s license six months for each drug charge.

Moss had pleaded guilty to the four drug distribution charges in June after entering into a plea agreement with the Commonwealth.

Pursuant to that agreement, the court dismissed a charge against the defendant for a violation of his pre-trial supervision with Halifax-Pittsylvania Court Services.

The case was subsequently continued to Monday in order for Moss to be evaluated for the Detention and Diversion center programs.
