A 37-year-old Lunenburg resident received an active sentence of one year and 11 months in prison recently for a charge of distributing cocaine and child endangerment.

Terry Alexander Hurt received his sentence at Lunenburg Circuit Court upon pleading guilty to one felony of distribution of cocaine and one felony of child endangerment.

He has an additional eight years and one month suspended upon numerous conditions.

According to a release from the Lunenburg Commonwealth’s Attorney Office, the local narcotics task force, under the direction of Lunenburg County Deputy Sheriff Christopher Wallace, worked an undercover operation on April 19, 2016, and purchased $250 in cocaine from Hurt. Evidence showed that his 6-year-old daughter was present during the sale.

The task force waited until other operations at that time were completed and until other issues could be completed before Hurt was indicted on Feb. 5, 2018, the release noted.

Hurt’s additional suspended portion of his sentence is subject to conditions of good behavior, supervised probation upon his release for one year, warrantless searches and seizures, and restitution of $250.

Hurt will be allowed to report to jail on June 29, the release noted.
