Former Clarion University Football Star Sentenced to 4-8 Years In Erie Drug Case

July 10, 2014

Former Clarion University football star Roosevelt Benjamin was sentenced Thursday to four-to-eight years in state prison for his role in a large marijuana dealing operation in Erie.

In Erie County Court, the 37 year-old Benjamin, who is from Erie, was also sentenced to thirty months probation and to perform 500 hours of community service.

Erie Police said they had found about 400 pounds of marijuana in a van Benjamin was driving when they pulled him over in April, 2013.  Officials estimated the street value of the drug at $1.3 million.  Benjamin was allegedly part of an active marijuana ring operating in the Erie area.

In May, Benjamin entered guilty pleas to one count each of conspiracy, the delivery of marijuana and the possession of more than ten pounds of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Benjamin played high school football at Central Tech in Erie, and then after his stint with Clarion’s Golden Eagles, starred in arena football for four different Erie franchises.
