United States District Judge Terrence W. Boyle today found that Ervin Rodell Hughes violated his supervised release and remanded him to custody for processing.

Court documents show that the United States Probation Office will submit a written order to the court.

The Garysburg man appeared at the federal courthouse this morning in Raleigh with his counsel and admitted to three of four violations. The United States attorney withdrew one of the violations.

Hughes, who had been wanted by the United States Marshals Service, was arrested September 4 shortly before 1 a.m. while Weldon Officer A. Dickens and Corporal I. Smith were at the 51 Sycamore Bar and Grill.

They observed Hughes walking to his vehicle and Chief Christopher Davis said he appeared to be intoxicated.

In April Hughes admitted in federal court to a violation of parole and was told the court would continue the case for six months with a warning that if an additional violation was reported, the probation office would file a motion for revocation as well as request a warrant. Then he would be given a custody sentence.

Hughes had been sentenced in November of 2017 for possession with intent to distribute a quantity of cocaine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

He received a 75-month sentence and 36 months of federal supervised release which started May 27, 2022.
