Wakefield Woman Sentenced for Misprision of a Felony

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced today that LINDSEY DOOLEY, age 25, a resident of Wakefield, Louisiana, was sentenced after having previously pled guilty to misprision of a felony.

U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo sentenced DOOLEY to 3.5 years probation.

According to court documents, on May 8, 2013, while conducting a related heroin investigation, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives searched co-defendant STEPHEN FARRELL and DOOLEY’S residence in Metairie.  During the search, detectives found a loaded Taurus International .380 caliber firearm and drug paraphernalia.  FARRELL was convicted in federal court for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and was sentenced by Judge Milazzo to 68 months in federal prison.  Court records reveal that DOOLEY concealed FARRELL’S heroin distribution activities by providing a place for FARRELL to store and package heroin.

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in investigating this matter.   Assistant United States Attorney Nolan D. Paige was in charge of the prosecution.
