WASHINGTON — After nearly 30 years in prison, most of that time divided between maximum security and witness protection, Rayful Edmond, the biggest drug dealer in the Washington, D.C.’s history, could be on his way back home.

Sometime in May, Edmond is expected in a U.S. District courtroom where he will try to convince a federal judge to let him go free with time served. Most D.C. murder sentences end a lot sooner than Edmond’s 30 years in prison.

Here is the real surprise: The federal government supports the 54-year-old’s bid to go free. Federal prosecutors and prison officials filed a motion to reduce his life sentences. It’s a move that, observers said, is highly unlikely and rare.

The government is arguing that Edmond’s assistance in breaking up other drug operations has been invaluable. They said he has led them to more than 100 drug dealers arrests, prosecutions and convictions.

The case has been assigned to U.S. Court District Judge Emmet Sullivan.
