A Dover man targeted in a drug investigation after selling heroin to an undercover police officer was sentenced to prison. Deputy Attorney General Gregory Babowal secured the sentence for 26-year-old Javon Young. In January 2019, members of the State Police Kent County Drug Unit and Kent County Governor’s Task Force saw Young driving a car from which he sold the drugs, and knowing Young did not have a driver’s license, attempted to pull him over. Young refused to stop and led police on a chase that ended after Young collided with a police cruiser. Young, who had 185 bags of heroin when taken into custody, pleaded guilty in May to Drug Dealing, Drug Dealing a Counterfeit Controlled Substance, and Disregarding a Police Officer. A Superior Court judge sentenced Young to 3 years in prison followed by 1 year of either work release or home confinement, then 1 year of probation, and fined him $575.

As Delaware students prepared for a new school year, the DOJ’s Community Engagement Unit welcomed them to a Back to School Community Resource Fair at Judy Johnson Park in Wilmington. The event, held Wednesday August 21st, gave students and their families an opportunity to collect school supplies, connect with community resources, and enjoy a day of family-friendly activities including free haircuts before returning to school. Over 500 people joined Attorney General Kathy Jennings at the event. In addition to the Community Engagement Unit, Attorney General Jennings thanked DOJ volunteers, the City of Wilmington, the Wilmington Department of Police, and other agencies, non-profits, and local businesses for making the day possible.
