Buffalo man going to prison for selling crack cocaine
BUFFALO, N.Y.—U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration New York Division Special Agent in Charge Ray Donovan announced today that Julian Brown, 47, of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of distribution of crack cocaine, was sentenced to serve 30 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles J. Volkert, Jr., who handled the case, said that on February 16, 2018, the defendant supplied his co-defendant, Andre Honeycutt, with a quantity of crack cocaine. Honeycutt in turn sold the drugs to an individual working with the DEA. Brown also supplied crack cocaine on two other occasions during the investigation.
Andre Honeycutt was previously convicted and sentenced.
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the DEA Buffalo Resident Office.
