New Orleans Woman Sentenced for Misprision of a Felony

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that BRIDGET MARIE MILES, age 47, of New Orleans, was sentenced yesterday after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Superseding Bill of Information for Misprision of a Felony, Hobbs Act robbery.

U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced MILES to serve 21 months in prison, to be followed by one year of supervised release.

According to court documents, MILES conspired with and gave information to members of a local New Orleans gang led by GREGORY DENSON.   DENSON used the information provided by MILES to commit home invasion robberies of drug dealers in an effort to make money and/or obtain illegal drugs for later retail sale.  Members of this gang also conspired to use, possess and discharge firearms to further their drug trafficking activity, and commit acts of violence against other drug dealers to obtain drugs and drug proceeds.

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Orleans Police Department led Multi-Agency Gang Unit in investigating this matter.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael M. Simpson and Michael E. McMahon were in charge of the prosecution.
