BOSTON – A Lynn man was sentenced today for his role in a drug trafficking conspiracy.

Patrick Dunn, 30, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV to three years of supervised release. The government recommended a sentence of eight months in prison. On March 26, 2021, Dunn pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl and cocaine.

Dunn was charged as part of an investigation into a drug trafficking organization distributing large quantities of fentanyl, cocaine and other controlled substances in the greater Boston area. In September 2017, Dunn distributed cocaine and fentanyl to an undercover officer in Boston.

The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The remaining defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
