KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Beth Phillips, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that four Kansas City, Mo., men have been sentenced in federal court for their roles in a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.

Christopher L. Jackson, also known as “Cuz,” 28, Christopher T. Eubanks, also known as “Banks,” 37, and Gerome D. Guy, also known as “Rome,” 29, all of Kansas City, were sentenced on Tuesday, June 22, 2011, in separate appearances before U.S. District Judge Ortrie D. Smith. Jackson was sentenced to 10 years and 10 months in federal prison without parole. Eubanks was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison without parole. Guy was sentenced to five years in federal prison without parole.

Kalin Lenoir, also known as “Kid,” 25, of Kansas City, was sentenced on Monday, June 20, 2011, to 10 years in federal prison without parole.

Jackson, Eubanks, Guy and Lenoir each pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine in Jackson County, Mo., from Jan. 1, 2007, to Sept. 28, 2009. The drug-trafficking conspiracy is estimated to have generated $300,000 in drug proceeds, which the defendants must forfeit to the government.

Eubanks and Lenoir both admitted that they provided powder cocaine and crack cocaine to co-defendant Charles Davis, also known as “Hustler” or “Uncle Charley,” 24, of Kansas City. Davis, who has pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing, primarily operated in the 4600 block of Chestnut Avenue in Kansas City, Mo. Davis also provided crack cocaine to Jackson and Guy, who sold to customers in the same neighborhood.

They are among six co-defendants who have been sentenced. Domynick Hubbard, also known as “Duke,” 24, and Delvon Atkinson, also known as “Del,” 21, both of Kansas City, Mo., were each sentenced to five years in federal prison without parole. Two co-defendants have pleaded guilty and await sentencing.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David DeTar Newbert. It was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
