A jury convicted both brothers of kingpin charges in April 1993. but that verdict was overturned by an appellate court. The Court of Special Appeals ruled that Judge Goudy erred in letting a witness testify about crimes that preceded the 17-month time frame al- leged in the brothers' indictments. Roger who said little during yesterday's said the deal he reached with prosecutors' was similar to a deal offered before his original trial was the same amount of different he told Judge Goutiy. Deputy State's Attorney Gerald K. Anders declined to confirm the offer. Under terms of his plea Roger Emory will spend five years in prison without parole. That term will be followed by two consecutive five years and four seven months Judge Gourly gave him credit for jail time he has served since his arrest Oct. 29. 1992. Emory also was sentenced to two more consecutive prison of five years and four years. But prosecutors will drop the conspiracy and paraphernalia possession that led to those terms once James Emory's trial ends.
