Bad boy Ealey was also charged with fleeing and eluding a police officer, reckless driving, driving without a valid permit, carrying a handgun and transporting a handgun on a highway on Aug. 5, 2014. On Feb. 13, 2015, Ealey pleaded guilty to driving with a handgun while the Prince Georges County States Attorney Angela Alsobrooks dropping the other charges.
Court records show that the plea deal between Alsobrooks and Ealey called for him to go to prison for 3 years but all but 13 months was suspended. The sentence was backdated to Aug. 4, 2014, when he was locked up. Since he was on probation he was available for a gunfight, which he apparently lost.
A plea bargain for a drug dealing charge on Nov. 11, 2011 resulted in States Attorney Alsobrooks dropping the dealing charge in return for a guilty plea from Ealey on a charged os possession of pot. The deal included no fine and no time, which indicates that Ealey likely ratted out another drug dealer, who may be responsible for his murder. If so, most folks would call this a twofer.
