Jermaine Seay

DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. – Jermaine Seay was sentenced today to two to four years in a state correctional facility by the Dauphin County Judge Deborah E. Curcillo after entering a guilty plea to Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Criminal Use of a Communication Facility, and Possession of a Controlled Substance.

The case began in December 2015, when a confidential informant working with the Pennsylvania State Police contacted Seay, whom he knew as “D”, and arranged to buy crack cocaine from him on December 9, 2015 in Harrisburg.

Pennsylvania State Police Troopers were assisted by the Dauphin County Drug Task Force and set up surveillance of the buy.  “D” sold the confidential informant 2.25 g of crack cocaine for $170.  The Dauphin County Drug Task Force was able to obtain photographs of “D” at the deal, and he was later identified as Jermaine Seay by members of the Harrisburg City Vice Unit and Pennsylvania State Parole Officers.

At the time of the incident, Seay was on state parole for another drug delivery that he plead guilty to in 2012.
