Man Sentenced for Fentanyl and Cocaine Conspiracy
BOSTON – A Quincy man was sentenced yesterday for his involvement in a drug conspiracy involving fentanyl and cocaine.
Tre Fernandes, a/k/a “OZ” or “OC,” 26, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV to three months in prison, nine months of home confinement and three years of supervised release. On May 13, 2021, Fernandes pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl and cocaine.
In October 2017, Fernandes delivered 6.91 grams of a substance containing fentanyl to an undercover officer. Fernandes was charged as part of an investigation into a drug trafficking organization distributing large quantities of fentanyl, cocaine and other controlled substances in the greater Boston area.
Acting United States Attorney Nathaniel R. Mendell; Brian D. Boyle, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Boston Field Division; James Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Boston Field Division; and Boston Police Acting Commissioner Gregory Long made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorneys John Mulcahy and Sarah Hoefle of Mendell’s Criminal Division prosecuted the case.
The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The remaining defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
