Plattsburgh Heroin Dealer Sentenced To 71 Months
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - John V. Brown, 45, of New York City, was sentenced today to serve 71 months in prison, to be followed by four years of supervised release for supplying heroin in the Plattsburgh area.
The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division, U.S. Drug Enforcement (DEA).
The sentence followed Brown’s October 21, 2015 guilty plea. Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. sentenced Brown, also known as “Football,” for supplying at least half a kilogram of heroin to the Plattsburgh area between July and December of 2014.
The case was investigated by DEA and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Collyer.
