A judge set a $15,000 bond requirement last Thursday for the pretrial release of a Leonardtown man after his arrest on a pair of indictments charging him with distributing cocaine last December in Leonardtown.
St. Mary’s grand jurors charged 24-year-old Calverio Terrill Somerville with committing the offenses on Dec. 4 and Dec. 11, on testimony earlier this month by sheriff’s narcotics detectives.
A prosecutor noted during last week’s bond hearing that Somerville has a 2008 conviction for the possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. Online court records state that Somerville’s guilty plea in that case resulted in a two-year prison sentence.
“You’re about to get into the big leagues, I guess,” St. Mary’s Circuit Judge David W. Densford said at the hearing on the cocaine charges.
Man indicted in drug overdose
Jason Michael Reintzell, 35, of Lexington Park has waived his arraignment scheduled for next month on an indictment charging him with the distribution of heroin and recklessly endangering Jessica Ann Bonacci, a 28-year-old Great Mills resident, last February in Lexington Park.
Law officers were dispatched on Feb. 19 to the parking lot of the Mobil gas station on Route 235 in Lexington Park, court papers state, where Reintzell was arrested on initial district court charging papers alleging that he sold heroin to a woman, leading to a drug overdose that required her to go to a hospital.
The woman received immediate medical attention at the scene, before she was taken to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown for further treatment, according to a statement of probable cause filed by sheriff’s deputy Rozier Steinbach. A senior detective said that the woman survived the drug overdose.
Pill distribution alleged
Steven Michael Otto, 29, of Hollywood is scheduled to be arraigned next month on an indictment charging him with distributing alprazolam last January in Leonardtown.
In early February, Otto was sentenced to 15 years in prison, suspended to 18 months in jail with work-release privileges, from his guilty plea to conspiring in November 2011 to distribute oxycodone in Mechanicsville.
