Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. today sentenced Alexander Rosado-Figueroa (45, Orlando) to six years and three months in federal prison for possessing with the intent to distribute heroin and cocaine, while Rosado-Figueroa was on supervised release for a prior drug conviction. Rosado-Figueroa had pleaded guilty to the possession and distribution offenses on July 3, 2018. He admitted to violating the terms of his supervised release on November 13, 2018. 

According to court documents, on January 31, 2018, Deputy U.S. Marshals arrested Rosado-Figueroa for violating the terms of his supervised release after he had tested positive for using cocaine and opiates. During the arrest, Rosado-Figueroa was found to be carrying 15.5 grams of cocaine, 7 grams of heroin, and supplies used in the distribution of these controlled substances. When agents from the Orange County Sherriff’s Office Narcotics Unit conducted a search of Rosado-Figueroa’s apartment, they recovered an additional 73 grams of heroin, additional materials used in the distribution of controlled substances, and a handgun with a loaded magazine. 

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Probation Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Dana E. Hill, Embry J. Kidd, and Kara M. Wick.
