Two brothers who were arrested in March of last year on felony drug sale charges both pleaded guilty recently, and are due to be sentenced next month.
Police arrested Robert Trent and Curtis Trent Jr. in March of 2012, saying they sold cocaine in the area the year prior.
Robert was arrested in an East End Drug Task Force sting, and has faced – and pleaded guilty to – more charges than his older brother after being involved in one other incident.
Both have been out of police custody after posting bond in late March of last year.
In late February, Robert pleaded guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance in the second degree, which covers the other seven felonies he was charged with, including two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the first degree. A spokesman for District Attorney Thomas Spota, Bob Clifford, said he faces four years in state prison and five years post-release supervision.
Curtis pleaded guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree and according to Clifford, faces a year in Suffolk County Jail.
Both will be sentenced by Judge Richard Ambro on April 29.
