LEESBURG, Virginia – September 11, 2019.  A thirty-three year old Maryland man appeared before the Loudoun County Circuit Court for sentencing on six counts of distributing a schedule I or II controlled substance.  The Hon. Judge James P. Fisher sentenced Phillip Allan Cash to ten years in the Virginia Department of Corrections.

In early September 2018, Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office detectives contacted Phillip Cash and arranged to purchase cocaine and Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA).  Mr. Cash sold an undercover detective one ounce of cocaine on six separate occasions.  The detective paid Mr. Cash a total of $9,420 for the six ounces of cocaine.

“Mr. Cash was an organized drug dealer, selling large amounts of this poison on our streets purely for personal financial profit,” said Chief Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Nicole Wittmann.  “Many offenders that are caught selling drugs often do so to support their own addiction, and we treat those individuals very differently.  This was not the case with Mr. Cash, who was operating a business,” continued Wittmann.

Judge Fisher also imposed an additional twenty years of suspended penitentiary time, ordered Mr. Cash to pay $9,420 restitution to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and imposed a $60,000 fine.  Upon his release from incarceration, Mr. Cash will be placed on five years of supervised probation.
