Jernell Cook

ATTLEBORO — A 33-year-old man arrested in a drug raid at a South Main Street home in September was sentenced Monday to serve a year in jail after pleading guilty.

Jernell Cook, who was living at the home at 271 South Main St. when it was raided Sept. 11, was given a two-year sentence, one year to serve, in Attleboro District Court. He pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

A drug conspiracy charge was dismissed.

Cook was one of four people arrested in the raid in which police seized $3,300 cash and what authorities said were narcotics consistent with street-level dealing.

The sentence was recommended to the court by the prosecution and Cook’s lawyer, Daniel Rich of Norton.

In April, a co-defendant, Justin Croke, 25, of Taunton, was sentenced to serve one year of an 18-month sentence after pleading guilty to conspiring to violate drugs laws.
