Heroin Dealer Who Injured Officer Sentenced to State Prison

January 27, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Kristi Hoover, 215.348.6018, kbhoover@buckscounty.org

A young heroin dealer who injured a Morrisville police officer during a drug investigation was sentenced to state prison today in Bucks County Court.

Jakeem N. Gibbs, 21, of Trenton, pleaded guilty to charges including aggravated assault, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and recklessly endangering another person.

Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr. accepted a plea agreement in which Gibbs will serve 15 to 30 months in state prison, followed by two years of probation. Gibbs also was ordered to pay $2,581.70 in restitution for medical treatment of injured Morrisville Police Officer Lee Matthews.

Matthews suffered lacerations to his arms, knees and hands on July 22 after Gibbs sped away in his car when the officer tried to question him. While trying to stop Gibbs, Matthews was dragged a short distance as the car pulled away.

The officer had been investigating a report of narcotics sales at a gas station in Morrisville when he approached Gibbs, who was sitting in a Nissan Altima. Gibbs refused to exit the vehicle when asked to do so, instead speeding off and crossing a nearby bridge into New Jersey.

The next day, police executed a search warrant at an apartment in Morrisville where Gibbs was living at the time. During the search, Gibbs attempted to throw packets of heroin out of his bathroom window. Officers recovered 100 bags of the drug, which Gibbs admitted belonged to him.

In court, Gibbs said he was using eight bags of heroin per day at the time, and was selling the drug to support his habit. “I’d like to apologize” for injuring Matthews, he told Bateman. “I panicked at the time.”

Gibbs said that he has stopped using heroin. Under questioning from Bateman, he said he suffers from mental health problems, for which he has received treatment in the past. He also acknowledged having been shot on two different occasions, suffering six gunshot wounds.

“The facts of this case are quite serious,” Bateman said in pronouncing the sentence. Defense attorney Thomas Logan asked that Gibbs be sent to a facility where he could continue to receive drug and mental health treatment.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Kristi Hoover.

Approved for release by Michele Kelly Walsh, Deputy District Attorney.
