For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that STANLEY REDDICK, 35, of Hartford, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer in New Haven to 120 months of imprisonment, followed by four years of supervised release, for multiple drug offenses.

According to the evidence introduced during the trial in this matter, on two occasions in April 2017, investigators made controlled purchases of a total of approximately 110 grams of crack cocaine from Reddick.

Reddick was arrested on May 3, 2017.  On that date, a search of his residence and his person revealed approximately 32 grams of crack, 42 grams of heroin, nine grams of a mixture of heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine, and items used to process and package narcotics for street sale.  Investigators also found a key to an inoperative vehicle that was parked behind the residence, a subsequent search of which revealed a 9mm firearm and approximately 28 grams of fentanyl.

On January 12, 2018, a jury found Reddick guilty of two counts of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of 28 grams or more of cocaine base (“crack”), one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine base, and one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl.  The jury found Reddick not guilty of one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Reddick has been detained since his arrest.

This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Hartford Police Department’s Focused Violence Reduction Team.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Marc H. Silverman and Michael J. Gustafson.
