NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that ANYTHONY DOYLE (“DOYLE”), age 40, a resident of New Orleans, was sentenced on May 21, 2024 by Chief United States District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown  on three (3) counts of distribution of Fentanyl, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1), 841(b)(1)(B), and 841(b)(1)(C).

According to court documents, on three (3) separate occasions in August of 2023, DOYLE sold Fentanyl to undercover special agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.  DOYLE arranged these transactions through recorded phone calls and text messages.  These transactions were video recorded.  For one of the three drug deals, DOYLE sent his co-defendant, CARLOS GUILLEN, on his behalf. 

Specifically, Chief Judge Brown sentenced DOYLE to serve 92 months in prison, to be followed by four (4) years of supervised release and a mandatory special assessment fee of $300.  Previously, DOYLE’s co-defendant GUILLEN pled guilty to distribution of Fentanyl and received a sentence of thirty months in prison.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives on this investigation. The prosecution of this case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Maria M. Carboni of the Financial Crimes Unit.
