Man Who Sold Fentanyl Upstate and in SDNY Gets 90 Months As US Speaks of OD Victim

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 15 – Saul Pacheco was convicted of selling 100 pills containing fentanyl in New York City a month of being arrested for fenantyl-laced heroin in upstate New York. 

On September 15 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it.  

 The US Attorney's Office emphasized that "at least one customer had died from an overdose based on the drugs provide by Pacheco's source of supply," and in the proceeding spoke a victim's name.  

 Pacheco's lawyer on the other hand emphasized how he had worked on this father's ice cream truck and has a job waiting for him when he gets out of jail, seemingly in Danbury.  

Judge Engelmayer took a short break, as is his way, and then imposed a sentence of 90 months, below the 108 months guidelines but six months more than the sentence in the North District of New York heroin case.

This case is US v. Pacheco, 18-cr-659 (Engelmayer)
