CONSPIRACY TO DISTRIBUTE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE

Case Pending

Criminal Charge: Conspiracy to Distribute Controlled Substance and Unlawful Use of a Communication Facility
Case: U.S. v. Tasmin Stewart [3:15-cr-44-D(22)][NDTX]
Result: Pending


Summary:

The U.S. Attorney alleges Mr. Stewart unlawfully used a cell phone during the course of a sale of oxycodone in a motel. In exchange for his guilty plea, the AUSA agreed to dismiss the greater count of Conspiracy. As is the usual case in federal prosecutions, the AUSA tries to trump up claims about his prior misconduct to enhance his sentence. The case is pending sentencing.
