Details of the plea deal taken by Reams last week are sealed but a memorandum of plea agreement is contained in the electronic federal court record.

Absent a continuance, sentencing is set for December 12.
Cherry is scheduled for sentencing on November 7 in New Bern, court records show.
Cherry pled guilty to count 1 against him. The second count against him will be dismissed at sentencing.
The count Cherry will plead to says the amount of heroin involved in the conspiracy was 100 grams or more.
The count to be dismissed charges the men on March 13, the day of their arrest, knowingly and intentionally possessed with the intent to distribute 100 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin.
