9 Years In Prison for Heroin and Oxycodone Drug Dealer

Criminal Division | Department of Justice | Department of Justice Press Releases | Date Posted: Friday, November 16, 2018



Other defendants face prison time on murder and manslaughter charges

A Wilmington drug dealer who laced heroin with fentanyl and oxycodone received a prison sentence for his conviction on drug charges earlier this year. Deputy Attorney General Monil Amin secured the guilty conviction and sentence for 29-year-old Sidierra Bailey. In November 2017, Detective Jeffrey Silvers of the Wilmington Police conducted surveillance in the area of the 200 block of North Rodney Street and observed Bailey conducting multiple drug sales as Bailey continued to count bundles of heroin from the pocket on the front of his hoodie. A Superior Court jury convicted Bailey on June 30, 2018 of 1 count of Drug Dealing Heroin laced with Fentanyl and 1 count of Drug Dealing Oxycodone Pills. A Superior Court judge sentenced Bailey as a habitual offender because of previous drug and weapons convictions, to 9 years in prison, followed by 6 months of either home confinement or work release, then 1 year of intensive supervision.

A 36-year-old Georgetown man pled guilty to Murder Second Degree in connection to a fatal shooting during an attempted robbery. In August 2017, Preston Nailor fatally wounded Ty’ron Lake, 19, of Bridgeville, when the two exchanged gunfire during a botched drug deal along Apple Tree Road in Bridgeville. A Superior Court judge immediately sentenced Nailor to 15 years including completion of the KEY substance abuse program, followed by 10 years of probation. Deputy Attorneys General John Donahue and Amanda Nyman prosecuted the case. The chief investigating officer was Delaware State Police Detective Daniel Grassi.

A Wilmington man pled guilty to stealing a car and killing two people after a head-on collision. Deputy Attorney General Barzilai Axelrod secured the plea to Manslaughter, Reckless Endangering, Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and Driving Under the Influence from Stephen Goodman, 34. In December 2017, while walking in the 1000 block of Bennett Street in the city, Goodman approached a woman standing next to a running Nissan Altima, shoved the woman, and got in the car and drove away. Later that evening, witnesses observed the vehicle speeding and running red lights on Churchmans Road in Stanton. Goodman eventually drove onto Delaware Park Boulevard, crossed the center line of the two-laned road, and struck another car. John Simon, 77, and Irma Simon, 92, both of Mantua, NJ died as a result of the collision. If declared a habitual offender, Goodman faces 25 years to life in prison when sentenced next year. Social worker Kristen Fluharty-Emory assisted with the case.
