Dasean Nisbett Of Bronx, New York Sentenced To Time Served For Possession With Intent To Distribute Oxycodone
(BURLINGTON, Vt. - Michael J. Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement for New England and the Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont stated that Dasean Nisbett, 24, of Bronx, New York was sentenced today to time served and three years of supervised release based on his arrest for possession with intent to distribute Oxycodone pills. U.S. District Judge William K. Sessions III also ordered that Nisbett submit to a period of home detention and location monitoring, as well as complete 100 hours of community service.
According to court records, on March 3, 2013, Nisbett arrived in Burlington after midnight on the Megabus from New York City. After a police canine alerted on the area of the bus where Nisbett had been sitting, University of Vermont Police approached Nisbett as he walked down Main Street. Nisbett denied having anything illegal in his possession and permitted law enforcement to search his person. A subsequent search revealed a bag of 1,000 oxycodone pills concealed in Nisbett’s underwear. Nisbett was subsequently indicted federally for possession with intent to distribute oxycodone.
This matter was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the University of Vermont Police Department. The government was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Doyle. Dasean Nisbett was represented by Michael L. Desautels, the Federal Defender for the District of Vermont.
