Three sentenced to years in prison on fentanyl and cocaine base charges

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont stated that on July 24, 2020, Chief United States District Judge Geoffrey W Crawford sentenced Luis Luna, 28, of Hartford, Connecticut; Edwin Martinez, aka “Pino”, 26, of Hartford, Connecticut; and Samuel Fuller, 34, of Barton, Vermont, following their guilty pleas to conspiracy to distribute illegal narcotics, including fentanyl and cocaine base. Chief Judge Crawford sentenced Luna to 72 months in prison, Martinez to 72 months in prison, and Fuller to 24 months in prison. James Bassett, 41, of North Troy, Vermont, a fourth co-conspirator will be sentenced on July 31, 2020.All four defendants pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to distribute more than 40 grams of fentanyl. In addition, Fuller and Luna pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to distribute more than 28 grams of cocaine base. Luna and Martinez pleaded guilty to a conspiracy stretching from December 2018 to June 2019, while Fuller and Bassett pleaded guilty to a conspiracy ending in May 2019.United States Attorney Christina E. Nolan commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Vermont Drug Task Force for their collaboration on this investigation.She stated: “Our law enforcement partners, federal and state, are united in their efforts to stop the flow of deadly opiates and other illegal narcotics from out of state. As this case demonstrates, we are working hard to root out long time drug traffickers in Vermont and from source cities like Hartford, Connecticut. This case demonstrates that our law enforcement partners work seamlessly across state lines and that there will be serious consequences for dealers who victimize and profit by feeding the addictions of Vermonters.”According to publicly available information, Edwin Martinez was Luis Luna’s fentanyl source in Hartford, Connecticut during the charged time period, and Luis Luna, in turn, supplied Samuel Fuller with the fentanyl that originated with Martinez. After making regular trips to Hartford, Connecticut and purchasing fentanyl from Luis Luna, Samuel Fuller would return to Vermont and split the fentanyl with James Bassett, who had provided the money for the purchase from Luis Luna.In addition, Luna was Fuller’s cocaine base source and would sell cocaine base to Fuller, who would then sell it in Vermont.In addition to the charged time period, Luna and Martinez have a history of supplying opiates to Vermonters since approximately 2012, including Fuller, who has been making trips to Hartford, Connecticut to buy opiates since approximately 2016.The Court noted Fuller’s addiction driven behavior during the conspiracy and his recovery since his arrest when explaining Fuller’s sentence.The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Vermont State Police’s Drug Task Force conducted the investigation in this matter. The United States was represented in this matter by Assistant US Attorneys Paul Van de Graaf and Nikolas Kerest.Luna was represented by Natasha Sen, Esq. Martinez was represented by Kevin Henry, Esq.

Snoop Dogg keeping focus on youth football before Super Bowl

first_imgSnoop Dogg is seen at the 2015 DIRECTV Super Fan Fest on Friday, Jan. 30, 2015 in Glendale, Ariz. (Photo by Donald Traill/Invision/AP)PHOENIX (AP) — Super Bowl weekend isn’t just about the championship game for Snoop Dogg — it’s also a reminder that the next generation of NFL greats need to develop.The rapper has for years sponsored a youth football league that has now seen several players turn pro.Running back Ronnie Hillman, who was in Dogg’s league growing up, was part of last year’s Denver Broncos team that made it to the Super Bowl.The Broncos lost, but Dogg said it’s may only be a couple of years before one of his boys becomes a Super Bowl champion.“They’re coming out left and right,” Dogg said Friday before performing at the DirecTV Super Fan Fest.“We did a great job as far as establishing this football league years ago,” he said.Dogg is hosting his youth football event, Snooperbowl 2015, at a Phoenix-area high school on Saturday. He said the event is about giving the players “hopes and aspirations to make it on and off the field,” the rapper said.Dogg, who got his career started on Suge Knight’s Death Row Records label, was mum on the arrest of the former rap mogul on suspicion of killing a man in Compton by running over him with his truck.He dropped his head and stayed silent. He said, “I had to get Marshawn Lynch on you,” referencing the Seattle Seahawks running back who answers reporter’s questions with silence or the same answer over-and-over again.last_img read more

Inside Conditions…The pleasure principles

first_imgAUBREY BRUCEHere we round the mulberry bush, again. It seems that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant’s penchant for the “herbs and spices” has again taken precedent over his on the field value to the Black and Gold.When I generally think of Bryant, four words come to mind, talented, talented, talented, selfish, stupid and sideways. That is only four words, the word talented was repeated.  Bryant is being accused of and is again facing suspension for a second time for allegedly violating the NFL’s illegal substance abuse policies, again.According to an article Posted by Mike Florio on profootballtalk.com on March 12, 2016, Florio wrote that: “Martavis Bryant apparently hasn’t chosen football over marijuana. Dejan Kovacevic of dkpittsburghsports.com reports that Bryant is “facing a season-long suspension.”If this flows from the continuation of issues that Bryant said after serving a four-game suspension in 2015 “are behind me now,” it’s unclear why Bryant has skipped over the 10-game suspension and went straight to what would be, technically, a banishment with the ability to apply for reinstatement after one calendar year passes.It’s possible that, while facing a 10-game suspension for a violation of the policy, Bryant committed a separate violation.”There are many excuses about alcohol and drug abuse but it is my opinion the majority of the reasons that many psychologists’ and sociologists present to justify the use and abuse of drugs in American society is “one big crock.”Society needs to classify sins of pleasure as diseases’ in order to “invent treatments” to make money.  The following countries; Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brunei.India (only in the states of Gujarat, Manipur, Mizoram and Nagaland, and the union territory of Lakshadweep.) Iran, Kuwait Libya, Saudi Arabia are just a few of the countries that prohibit the consumption of alcohol by natural born citizens.A few of these countries will sell alcohol to foreigners’ and tourists’ in public places such as hotels etc, but prohibit natives from partaking in and enjoying wine and spirits.  However, Afghanistan is one of the world largest growers of the “poppy flower” one of the main sources of opiates, (the foundation of heroin) in the world and the population has a problem with the abuse of opiates.I could not find any alcohol abuse treatment centers listed in Afghanistan because alcohol consumption is forbidden and is not the drug of choice but the abuse of opiates is a serious problem. Notice I said alcohol is not the drug of choice as opposed to not being the disease of choice.According to the www.state.gov website; “In 2010, the United States [supported] 30 residential drug treatment centers – 75% of all centers – making it the largest contributor to drug treatment services in Afghanistan.” Now we have exported our failed drug treatment methods to the Middle East. Providing a flawed crutch and reasoning for their populace to indulge in drug activity. People can only abuse drugs that are readily available to them.The consumption of drugs and alcohol is not a disease.  Getting high makes one feel good, no ifs’, ands, or buts.  Diseases do not make you feel good. Logical human beings do not seek to ingest and have their bodies inhabited by a disease.Cancer is a disease, Ebola is a disease.  No one leaves their house at 1AM in the morning to chase down a dealer in a questionable part of town just to ask the question; “Hey, you got any of that cancer or heart disease, if you do how good is it?”Martavis Bryant does not need traditional rehab.  Mr. Bryant needs the Gap Band method to successfully kick the weed habit.  I am positive that the ole “oops up side your head” treatment if implemented before it is too late will suffice for Mr.  Bryant if it is implemented, post-haste.”Ask former NFL running back Ricky Williams if he regards smoking “Chronic” as a disease?  Now Martavis Bryant is allegedly and supposedly seeking treatment for “depression,” which may also be a crock of you know what.  Why?  Because if you, me or the gatepost stood to lose a hundreds of thousands of yen just because of playing the “Puff the Magic Dragon” game after hours instead of video games, hell, we would probably be depressed too.How can any sane human being justify destroying potentially Hall-of-Fame career just to get high?The real high is supposed to be derived from competing as an NFL athlete, not competing as to whose lungs have the largest capacity to smoke the most “ganga.”  Martavis Bryant will only cease to illegally smoke marijuana when getting high on football becomes more important that getting high on weed.Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412.583.6741Follow him on [email protected]last_img read more
