Office of the Louisa County Commonwealth’s Attorney Press Release
Louisa – Louisa County Commonwealth’s Attorney Rusty McGuire announced that Maurice Dooms, 41, Gordonsville, was sentenced to four years and six months in prison for cocaine distribution and firearm charges. On December 12, 2012, Dooms sold drugs in another jurisdiction. The Louisa County Narcotics Task Force was tracking the deal and immediately served a search warrant on Dooms’ residence in Gordonsville. Officers recovered the drugs from the first sale and recovered 34 grams of cocaine, shotgun, pistol and over $5,000 in cash from Dooms’ residence.
The Commonwealth sought to seize and forfeit the weapons, money and drugs and the forfeiture was granted by the court. The drugs will be destroyed and the money will be used by law enforcement to help combat crime in Louisa. The guns may be used by law enforcement for as long as useful and will then be destroyed. On speaking on the conviction McGuire said “this case shows us that crime does not pay. Mr. Dooms’ thought he was making a quick buck but lost his drugs, guns, money and now his liberty.”
This case is the result of the Louisa County Narcotics Task Force comprised of members from the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police.
