Probation violation adds to druggie's troubles

Philip Lynn McCan, Jr.

Leonardtown, MD -- A Lusby man who has a long record of drug involvement was sentenced Aug. 10 in St. Mary’s County Circuit Court for violation of probation. Philip McCan, Jr. is currently serving a four-year jail sentence in the Maryland Department of Corrections after being convicted June 11 in Calvert County Circuit Court of possession with Intent to distribute Oxycodone.

For violation of probation for the Calvert County conviction McCan was sentenced to two years backup time but that sentence was made concurrent with the four year term he is serving for the Calvert County conviction.

McCan was originally sentenced in St. Mary’s to three years but two years was suspended in August of 2011 for drug possession.

In the Calvert County case from September of last year, McCan was observed by Calvert County deputies securing drugs from several pharmacies, taking evasive actions while driving to avoid police detection and then selling the drugs to a Washington, DC man on the parking lot of a Prince Frederick liquor store.

McCan was represented at both the Calvert and St. Mary’s sentencing hearings by Clinton attorney RoLand Lee. The attorney reported to Judge Michael Stamm at the St. Mary’s hearing that his client was doing well in jail and attempting to take his General Education Development test. “This is as long as he has even been with medication,” Lee said.
