Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that TYLER CONNER, age 27, of Dallas, and AARON SHEEHAN, age 31, of New Orleans, were sentenced today after having previously pled guilty to one count of conspiring to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance sentenced CONNER to 60 months of incarceration, to be followed by 4 years of supervised release. SHEEHAN was sentenced to 30 months of incarceration, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release.
Beginning at a time unknown but not later than 2013, and continuing through 2016, CONNER frequently traveled back and forth to Texas to obtain quantities of methamphetamine, which he then resold in New Orleans. SHEEHAN was involved in the same conspiracy to sell methamphetamine in the New Orleans area.
Acting U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Louisiana State Police (LSP), and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) in investigating this matter. Assistant United States Attorney Brandon S. Long was in charge of the prosecution.
