Heroin Dealer Sentenced To 10 Years

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A Louisville, man, who pleaded guilty to possessing and dealing heroin, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release, by United States District Judge David J. Hale.

“Peddle this poison at your peril in the Western District of Kentucky” said U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman “Law enforcement here is committed and united to protect our families from this threat.”

Logan Charles Silliman, 33, was indicted by a Grand Jury sitting in Louisville on March 8, 2017.

Silliman was originally indicted with knowingly and intentionally distributing a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin, to Gregory Allen, whose death and serious bodily injury resulted from the use of the drugs. Under the terms of the plea agreement, Silliman voluntarily plead to a lesser offense, and pleaded guilty to knowing and possessing with intent to distribute a mixture of a substance containing a detectable amount of heroin.

According to a plea agreement, on or about December 19, 2016, Silliman distributed a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of heroin to Allen.

On or about January 6, 2017, Silliman possessed a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of heroin when police located the drugs in his apartment during the execution of a search warrant. Silliman admitted that he had been selling heroin for approximately two years.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Robert Bonar and Stephanie Zimdahl, and was investigated by the Louisville Metro Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
