NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – On July 12, 2023, ALVIE ROLLINS a/k/a ALVIN ROLLINS, age 26, plead guilty to a one-count indictment charging him with being a felon in possession of a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans.  His sentencing is scheduled for October 18, 2023.

ROLLINS faces a maximum sentence of fifteen years imprisonment, a fine up of up to $250,000.00, up to three years of supervised release following any term of imprisonment, and a mandatory $100 special assessment fee. 

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.

U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Orleans Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Mike Trummel and Inga Petrovich of the Violent Crime Unit.
