[ARCHIVED] Man Jailed up to 10 Years for Selling Heroin to Undercover Cop


A convicted heroin dealer will serve up to a decade in prison for selling heroin to an undercover police officer in Lancaster city.

Christian Woodson, 48, was convicted at trial in April of two felonies regarding the Feb. 26, 2016, sale in the 100 block of South Queen Street.

On Wednesday, Lancaster County Judge Donald Totaro ordered a sentence of 4½ to 10 years in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Marcus Shand, who won the conviction, asked for a sentence at the high end of the guidelines and in consideration of Woodson’s criminal record. Judge Totaro ordered a high-end sentence.

Police had been investigating Woodson’s activities prior to the undercover operation.

Lancaster city police filed charges.
