Windsor Man Pleads Guilty to Selling Heroin and Fentanyl to Enfield Overdose Victim

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

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that TIMOTHY CHARLEMAGNE, also known as “Red,” 42, of Windsor, pleaded guilty today in New Haven federal court to one count of possession with intent to distribution, and distribution of, controlled substances.

This matter stems from an ongoing statewide initiative targeting narcotics dealers who distribute heroin, fentanyl or opioids that cause death or serious injury to users.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on April 11, 2015, members of the Enfield Police Department and medical personnel responded to an untimely death at a residence in Enfield.  The victim was located in a bedroom of the residence.  Investigators seized 30 empty wax folds from the bedroom where the victim was found, and the victim’s cell phone.

Analysis of the victim’s cellphone and witness interviews confirmed that the victim purchased heroin combined with fentanyl from CHARLEMAGNE shortly before the victim died.

CHARLEMAGNE has been detained since his arrest on December 20, 2017.  He is scheduled to be sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven on November 26, 2018, at which time he faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.

This matter is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Enfield Police Department, Windsor Police Department, Hartford Police Department and Connecticut’s Office of Adult Probation.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jocelyn Courtney Kaoutzanis.
