May 10, 2010

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A state prison inmate serving a sentence for second-degree murder was sentenced last week in Washington County Circuit Court to an additional two years in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon while in detention and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to court records.

Gregory Everett, 30, an inmate at Roxbury Correctional Institution south of Hagerstown, was sentenced May 4 by Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III, records show.

In exchange for the plea, the State's Attorney's Office agreed to dismiss three counts of possession of contraband while in confinement and one count each of possession of a weapon while in detention, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of a controlled dangerous substance while in detention, records show.

Boone ordered that the sentence run consecutively with a 2007 sentence Everett is serving for second-degree assault on a Division of Corrections employee, according to court records.

Everett was charged Oct. 7, 2009, with having two homemade knives, each about 7 inches long, concealed in his shoes, according to the application for statement of charges. Officers also found a folded piece of paper in a pants pocket that contained a trace amount of heroin, the application stated.

Everett, of Baltimore, was sentenced in Baltimore County Circuit Court in 2002 on second-degree murder, and related handgun and weapons convictions, Assistant State's Attorney Brett Wilson said. Before the new sentence, Everett's earliest release date was 2045, Wilson said.
