BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Nathanial Myers, 26, of Buffalo, NY, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and distribute 280 grams or more of crack cocaine, before Chief U.S. District Frank P. Geraci, Jr. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a $5,000,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joel L. Violanti, who is handling the case, stated that between February and July of 2015, the defendant, along with several others, distributed crack cocaine base throughout the areas of Lombard, Rother, Gibson, and Playter Streets in Buffalo. During this same time, Myers would supply the crack cocaine to his co-conspirators for further re-sale.
The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin P. Lyons.

Sentencing is scheduled for August 9, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. before Judge Geraci.
