U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Florida

Tampa, Florida – U.S. District Judge Susan C. Bucklew has sentenced Martin Felder, Jr. (43, Orlando) to 12 years in federal prison for possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. The court also ordered Felder to forfeit assets, which are traceable to proceeds of the offense. Felder had pleaded guilty on October 20, 2022.

According to court documents, Felder, a previously convicted felon, was under investigation for narcotics distribution in the Tampa Bay area. On two subsequent occasions, Felder sold methamphetamine and heroin to a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) confidential source. A forensic laboratory test of the narcotics seized indicated that the methamphetamine was “ICE” – which is very high purity methamphetamine.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Callan Albritton and Maria Guzman.
