Buffalo Woman Sentenced to Over 8 Years on Drug Conspiracy Charge

JUL 02 (BUFFALO, N.Y.) - Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New York Division and U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr., Western District of New York, announced today that Fannie Long, 53, of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, was sentenced to 96 months in prison by Senior U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank T. Pimentel, who handled the case, stated that between January 2009 and September 26, 2013, the defendant conspired with co-defendant Sherylrica Quisenberry to distribute controlled substances. Long obtained fentanyl prescriptions from medical professionals which were then filled and sold by the defendant. In addition, Long obtained fraudulent prescriptions which were not written by medical professionals. The prescriptions were made out in the names of individuals engaged by the defendant. These individuals would fill the fraudulent prescriptions and then turn the controlled substances over to Long for further distribution. The controlled substances included Lortab, Xanax and Soma.

Similar charges are pending against Sherylrica Quisenberry. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Buffalo Resident Office.
