Lakewood Woman Admits Conspiring to Sell Heroin in New Jersey

Lakewood Township New Jersey

A South Jersey woman who was a member of a large-scale drug trafficking organization today admitted distributing more than 100 grams of heroin, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Dawn Rosser, 34, of Lakewood, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Peter G. Sheridan in Trenton federal court to an information charging her with one count of conspiring to distribute heroin.

In March 2014, 20 other alleged members of the drug trafficking organization of which Rosser was a member were charged by criminal complaint with conspiring to distribute heroin. 

The complaint referred to the drug trafficking organization as the “Britt-Young DTO,” after its leaders, Robert Britt, a/k/a “True,” and Rufus Young, a/k/a “Equan,” a/k/a “E-Money,” a/k/a “Kintock.” Of those individuals, nine have pleaded guilty.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Between February 2013 and March 2014, Rosser conspired with others to distribute heroin in Ocean and Monmouth counties. Rosser admitted distributing between 100 and 400 grams of heroin.

The narcotics conspiracy charge to which Rosser pleaded guilty carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and $1 million fine. 

Sentencing is scheduled for June 5, 2015.
