Brooklyn Man Pleads Guilty to Oxycodone Conspiracy

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Angel Nunez, age 28, of Brooklyn, New York, pled guilty today to conspiring to distribute oxycodone. 

 

The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

 

Nunez faces up to 20 years in prison and 3 years of post-imprisonment supervised release when he is sentenced on February 22, 2017 by U.S. District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino.  A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and other factors.

 

As part of his plea, Nunez admitted that from October 2015 through February 2016, he obtained approximately 2,000 oxycodone tablets from sources in New York City, transported the oxycodone to Albany, and distributed the oxycodone to co-conspirators for sale in the Northern District of New York.

 

This case was investigated by the DEA and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Coffman.
