Camden County Prosecutor Vincent P. Sarubbi announced that Sherron Rolax, M/23, pleaded guilty today to Possession with the Intent to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance Within 1,000 feet of a School.

Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Chatten will recommend that Rolax, of Oak Avenue in Lawnside, receive a sentence of five years in New Jersey State Prison, including three years without parole eligibility, when he is sentenced Feb. 28, 2003.

New Jersey State Police Officers arrested Rolax at approximately 12:25 a.m. on May 31, 2002, at Sheridan and Cope streets, after observing him conduct multiple drug sales. He was charged with possession with the intent to distribute heroin. He is being held in the Camden County Correctional Facility in lieu of $35,000 bail.

Rolax was the subject of a search conducted by then-Gov. Christie Whitman during the 1990s. Rolax filed a civil lawsuit alleging the search violated his civil rights. The suit was dismissed.
