ROCHESTER, N.Y.-- U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Adminda Poole, a/k/a Adminda Lopez, 39, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute, and possession with intent to distribute, heroin and cocaine, was sentenced to 125 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank H. Sherman, who handled the case, stated that the defendant participated in a conspiracy between December 2013 and February 2014, to sell at least 200 grams of heroin and a kilogram of cocaine in Rochester.

In addition officers found $36,822 in cash. The defendant agreed to the forfeiture of the cash as part of her sentence.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Chief Michael Ciminelli.
