ROCHESTER -- Yusef Blocker, 35, of Rochester, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, before U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.  The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a fine of $1,000,000, or both.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Richard A. Resnick and Charles E. Moynihan, who are handling the case, said that on March 21, 2016, members of the United States Probation and Pre-Trial Services Office searched an apartment at 505 University Avenue in Rochester as part of their responsibilities while supervising Blocker. The defendant was convicted in 2005 of drug trafficking offenses in the Western District of New York. During the search, probation officers found drug paraphernalia, U.S. currency, and a quantity of crack cocaine.

Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 8.
