[ARCHIVED] GUILTY: Jury Convicts Lancaster Man of Cocaine Sales in 2016


A Lancaster man was convicted Tuesday of making three cocaine sales last year.

The Lancaster County jury returned guilty verdicts on six felonies against 43-year-old Rhamin Turner.

Assistant District Attorney Amber Czerniakowski presented evidence at the two-day trial about sales Turner made from April to June 2016 in Lancaster city and Lancaster Township, while under police surveillance.

The jury deliberated about 50 minutes before deciding the case late Tuesday afternoon.

Lancaster County Judge Merrill Spahn Jr. presided over trial and will order sentence after a background check is completed in a couple months.

At the verdict, Judge Spahn increased Turner’s bail to $750,000, which was not posted.

Lancaster city police filed charges.
