ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Jeffrey West, 42, of Greece, NY, who was convicted of possession with intent to distribute heroin, was sentenced to serve 188 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Cassie Kocher, who handled the case, stated that on April 19, 2018, members of the Monroe County Heroin Task Force executed a search warrant at the defendant’s home.
