New York woman sentenced to 54 months for crack, heroin and fentanyl trafficking
BANGOR, Maine – DEA New England Division Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Boyle and United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced Diana Davis, 32, of Rochester, New York, was sentenced in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 54 months in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute heroin, fentanyl and cocaine base, commonly known as “crack.” Davis pleaded guilty on Oct. 24, 2018.
According to court records, between June 2015 and March 2017, Davis conspired with others to acquire heroin, fentanyl and crack in Rochester and to distribute it from at least 12 residences in Central Maine. Davis came to Central Maine and distributed the drugs while residing with several Central Maine residents who were paid in heroin and crack for their participation.
On June 26, 2016, Davis was involved in an incident during which her brother—and co‑defendant—Frankie Dejesus exchanged gunfire with Reginald McBride in the parking lot of the Walmart in Augusta, Maine. In imposing sentence, Judge Woodcock recounted the drug-related backdrop leading up to the incident.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Department, with assistance provided by the Augusta, Maine Police Department.
