Baltimore Felon Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Armed Robbery

Baltimore, Maryland –U.S. District Judge George L. Russell III sentenced Jarwon D. Scott, age 26, of Baltimore, today to 10 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release for robbery and using a firearm during the robbery. 

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge William P. McMullan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Baltimore Field Division; Chief James W. Johnson of the Baltimore County Police Department; and Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger.

According to his plea agreement, on September 1, 2013, Scott offered to sell prescription drugs to residents of a motel in Catonsville, Maryland.  When it came time for the delivery, Scott used the ruse of supplying drugs to gain access to a motel room and, along with another individual, robbed the two occupants.  Scott brandished a handgun and demanded money from the occupants of the room.   

Scott was arrested a few days later on September 5.  Law enforcement seized a 9mm semi-automatic pistol with an obliterated serial number and ammunition from the car he was about to enter.  Scott had previously been convicted of a felony and was prohibited from possessing the gun and ammunition.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein commended the ATF, Baltimore County Police Department and Baltimore County State’s Attorney's Office for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorney Bonne S. Greenberg, who prosecuted the case.
