JUDGES OPINION

 

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Maurice Reginald Carr

 

Criminal Action-Law-Post Sentence Motions-Sentencing-Discretionary Aspects of Sentence-Factors for Sentencing-Location of Confinement-Plea Agreement-Use of a Controlled Substance at County Correctional Facility

 

Maurice Reginald Carr (“Defendant”) pled guilty to Possession of a Controlled Substance after he was observed by a correctional officer at the Lebanon County Correctional Facility when he was an inmate smoking a Schedule 1 controlled substance.  The plea agreement provided that Defendant would serve a minimum sentence of imprisonment of one (1) year less one (1) day.  The Court rejected the plea agreement and sentenced Defendant to serve six (6) months in a State Correctional Facility.  Defendant filed a Post Sentence Motion asserting that the Court abused its discretion by failing to impose the sentence contemplated under the plea agreement and imposing a sentence to be served at a State Correctional Facility.

 

  1. While the Commonwealth and a defendant are free to enter into a plea agreement, the terms of the plea agreement are not binding upon the court, which may reject the terms if they do not serve justice.

 

  1. A sentencing judge has broad discretion in choosing the range of permissible confinements that best suit a particular defendant and the circumstances surrounding the crime.

 

  1. In order to challenge successfully the discretionary aspects of sentence, a defendant must establish a substantial question that the sentence imposed was not appropriate under the Sentencing Code.

 

  1. To establish the existence of a substantial question, the defendant must show actions by the sentencing judge that are inconsistent with the Sentencing Code or contrary to the fundamental norms underlying the sentencing process.

 

  1. Inmates who display the willingness and ability to obtain and to use controlled substances while incarcerated at the Lebanon County Correctional Facility have forfeited the ability to remain locally incarcerated there.

 

  1. Defendant failed to establish that the sentence imposed was not appropriate under the Sentencing Code where Defendant had the ability to receive contraband at the Lebanon County Correctional Facility, the pipeline to receive that contraband has not been discovered, Defendant’s long history of drug use necessitates that he be held in an environment in which drug use cannot be facilitated and the Court imposed a minimal sentence that was less than that contemplated by the plea agreement and that was within the bottom range of the recommended ranges of sentence pursuant to the Pennsylvania Sentencing Guidelines.

APPEARANCES

 

Pier Hess Graf, Esquire                   For Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

DISTRICT ATTORNEY

 

Dalia A. Aboraya, Esquire               For Maurice Reginald Carr

PUBLIC DEFENDER’S OFFICE

 

OPINION BY CHARLES, J., August 25, 2020

 

Drug use inside a prison creates a recipe for disaster.  In any prison, the inmates vastly outnumber corrections officials.  When prisoners become high on controlled substances, the ability of corrections officials to maintain discipline and order is compromised, sometimes dangerously so.  It is the belief of this Court that when an inmate displays the willingness and ability to obtain and use drugs inside the Lebanon County Correctional Facility (LCCF), that inmate belongs somewhere else, not only for his sake, but for the peace and safety of everyone inside LCCF.

The DEFENDANT in this case argues that the opinion of this Court outlined above renders this Court incapable of rendering a fair decision regarding his sentence.  For reasons that follow, we strenuously disagree.

  1. FACTS

 

On March 17, 2018, while incarcerated at LCCF, a correctional officer observed Maurice Carr (Hereinafter DEFFENDANT) smoking what appeared to be a rolled cigarette. DEFENDANT was ordered to remove the contents of his pocket and a plastic bag containing a green leafy substance was recovered. The green leafy substance was tested at Harrisburg Regional Laboratory and was found to contain FUB-AMB, which is a Schedule I Controlled Substance.

On April 7, 2020, DEFFENDANT entered a guilty plea to Possession of a Controlled Substance. The plea agreement provided that DEFENDANT would serve a minimum sentence of one (1) year less a day. On July 1, 2020, a Sentencing Hearing was held, the court rejected the plea agreement and DEFENDANT was sentenced to serve six (6) months in a State Correctional Facility for Possession of a Controlled Substance.

 

  1. LEGAL PRINCIPLES

Generally, a judge may refuse to accept a plea of guilt or nolo contendere.  The Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure grant the trial court broad discretion in the acceptance and rejection of plea agreements. Commonwealth v. Rosario, 613 A.2d 1244, 1249 (Pa.Super.1992). There is no absolute right to have a plea accepted. Commonwealth v. Hudson, 820 A.2d 720, 727-28 (Pa.Super.2003). Accordingly, our Courts have reaffirmed that while the Commonwealth and a criminal defendant are free to enter into an arrangement that the parties deem fitting, the terms of a plea agreement are not binding upon the court. Rather, the court may reject those terms if the court believes the terms do not serve justice. Commonwealth v. White, 787 A.2d 1088, 1091 (Pa.Super.2001).

“Sentencing is a matter vested in the sound discretion of the sentencing judge.” Commonwealth v. Hess, 745 A.2d 29, 31 (Pa.Super. 2000) (citations omitted).  A sentencing judge has “broad discretion in choosing the range of permissible confinements which best suits a particular defendant and the circumstances surrounding his crime.”  Commonwealth v. Moore, 617 A.2d 8, 12 (Pa.Super. 1992).   Although judges have broad discretion in formulating sentences, this discretion is not unfettered.  Commonwealth v. Gause, 659 A.2d 1014 (Pa.Super. 1995).  For example, we are required to consider Pennsylvania’s Sentencing Guidelines.  42 Pa.C.S.A. § 9721(b).  These guidelines are not mandatory, but nonetheless must be “considered and, to insure that such consideration is more than mere fluff, the Court must explain its reasons for departure from them.”  Commonwealth v. Walls, 926 A.2d 957, 964 (Pa. 2007).

In order to challenge successfully any discretionary aspect of a sentence, a defendant must establish a “substantial question” that the sentence imposed was not appropriate under the sentencing code.  42 Pa.C.S.A. § 9781(b); Commonwealth v. Marts, 889 A.2d 608 (Pa.Super. 2005).  “The determination of whether a particular issue raises a substantial question is to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.” Commonwealth v. McAfee, 849 A.2d 270, 274 (Pa.Super. 2004).  “In order to establish a substantial question, the [defendant] must show actions by the trial court inconsistent with the Sentencing Code or contrary to the fundamental norms underlying the sentencing process.”  Id.

 

  • ANALYSIS

DEFENDANT states that his plea agreement was specifically negotiated with the purpose of allowing him to serve his time inside LCCF.  The DEFENDANT argues that this Court was “prejudiced” against the type of crime he committed because the Court stated at sentencing that inmates who possess drugs inside LCCF have forfeited their ability to remain locally  incarcerated.

This Court freely acknowledges that it is “prejudiced” against the crime of possessing drugs inside a prison.  As noted at the outset of this Opinion, drugs in a prison environment is a dangerous cocktail.  By definition, those who possess and use drugs inside a prison displayed the ability to receive smuggled drugs. Keeping inmates with this ability inside the same correctional facility potentially facilitates the injection of additional drugs into that facility.

In this case, the DEFENDANT obviously had the ability to receive smuggled drugs inside LCCF.  We do not know how the DEFENDANT smuggled or received drugs, and he did not share his methods with prison officials, police or this Court.  Effectively, the DEFENDANT’s pipeline to receive drugs inside LCCF has not been severed.  Placing the DEFENDANT back inside LCCF would put him in a position of being able to facilitate the introduction of more drugs back into LCCF.

The DEFENDANT himself has a long-term problem with drugs.  For the sake of his own rehabilitation, the DEFENDANT needs to be in an environment where drug use cannot be facilitated.  Sadly, but obviously, that environment is not LCCF.

In addition to all of the above, we need to emphasize that the sentence we eventually imposed was actually lower in terms of length than the one the DEFENDANT wanted us to impose.  Although this Court insisted upon a sentence that required the DEFENDANT to serve his time in the State Correctional system, we also agreed to a six (6) month minimum, which was at the bottom of the DEFENDANT’s Standard Sentencing Guideline Range.  Effectively, the DEFENDANT’s minimum sentence was reduced by almost six (6) months.  Yet he appealed.  We are forced to respond by asking: Why?  Perhaps the DEFENDANT is scared of serving time in a State Correctional facility.  Perhaps the DEFENDANT believes he will have trouble gaining parole status from the State Board of Probation and Parole.  Or perhaps the DEFENDANT knows that he will be unable to procure drugs in a State facility as he was within LCCF.  Regardless of his reasoning, it is incongruous to this Court that the DEFENDANT has chosen to appeal a sentence that was less than the one he now asks to receive.

The DEFENDANT’s argument that we erred in sentencing is patently erroneous.  This Court has broad discretion when crafting a sentence, just as we have broad discretion in determining whether or not to accept a proffered plea agreement.  In the opinion of this Court, the DEFENDANT has failed to establish a “substantial question” about the propriety of his sentence.  This Court’s decision to refuse to place the DEFENDANT back in the facility where he committed his crime is not contrary to fundamental norms underlying the sentencing process.  Accordingly, DEFENDANT’s Motion challenging the propriety of his sentence can and will be rejected.
