At the time, each was charged with multiple drug offenses, while in control of a firearm and within 1,000 feet of a school.
On May 30, Wilcox was sentenced by Judge Martha L. Mertz to a fine and 10 years in prison. The prison sentence was suspended and he received three years of probation. The fine and costs total $1,487.50.

His fine and court costs from that charge total $1,084.83 and are still reported as unpaid
