Description:

New Orleans, Louisiana criminal defense lawyer represented the Defendant charged with Drug Conspiracy

Conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine and tapentadol



DERRICK BRUMFIELD (“BRUMFIELD”), age 23, of New Orleans, was sentenced on May 28, 2024 by U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey to 45 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release, along with a $100 mandatory special assessment fee, after previously pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine and tapentadol, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 841(a)(1), 841(b)(1)(C), and 846.

According to court documents, BRUMFIELD conspired with three of his co-defendants to sell cocaine and tapentadol. On May 19, 2023, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) executed a search warrant at his co-conspirators’ residence in the Lower Ninth Ward area of New Orleans. Inside the residence, the FBI found several baggies of cocaine, seven boxes of tapentadol pills, a digital scale and other drug trafficking supplies, large amounts of cash, and five firearms.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David Berman of the Violent Crime Unit.

Outcome:

Defendant was found guilty and sentenced to 45 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release, along with a $100 mandatory special assessment fee
