Description: Denver, Colorado criminal defense lawyer represented defendant charged with selling methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl to undercover ATF agents on several occasions.

According to the plea agreement, on March 5, 2021, Walker sold approximately one pound of methamphetamine, 12 grams of heroin and approximately 30 fentanyl pills to a confidential informant and two undercover ATF agents. At the time, he was armed with a loaded pistol. On March 10, 2021, Walker sold approximately two pounds of methamphetamine and 43 fentanyl pills to the undercover agents. On April 20, 2021, Walker sold approximately one ounce of methamphetamine to an undercover agent. At the time, he was armed with a different pistol than the defendant possessed on March 5. On June 11, 2021, Walker sold approximately two pounds of methamphetamine, as well as smaller amounts of heroin and fentanyl pills to undercover ATF agents. The total sale price of the controlled substances was just over $18,000.

U.S. District Court Judge Raymond P. Moore sentenced the defendant on June 22, 2022. He also sentenced him to 5 years of supervised release. Co-defendant Michael Robbins, age 42, of Denver was sentenced to 84 months in prison and 4 years of supervised release in May of this year.

“We are currently facing a crisis with the amount of illicit drugs flowing into our communities. These lengthy prison sentences demonstrate that if you peddle this poison, we will prosecute you and hold you accountable,” said U.S. Attorney Cole Finegan. “We appreciate the work done by our partners at the ATF to bring these drug traffickers to justice.”

“Daniel Walker’s willingness to use crime guns while trafficking dangerous drugs such as heroin, meth and fentanyl supports the necessity of this strong sentence of over 16 years in federal prison,” said ATF Denver Field Division Special Agent in Charge David. S. Booth.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated this case, which was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Aaron Teitelbaum.

21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1), (b)(1)(A)(viii)Unlawful Distribution and Possession of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Distribute

Outcome: Imprisonment for a term of 200 months, supervised release for a term of five (5) years, $100 special assessment.
