BUFFALO, N.Y. — Acting U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Demario Robbins, 26, of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, was sentenced to 24 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.
Assistant U.S. Attorney George C. Burgasser, who handled the case, stated that as an associate of the Schuele Boys Gang, the defendant purchased cocaine from another gang member which he then repackaged into smaller amounts for re-sale in the Buffalo area.
The Schuele Boys Gang, which operated in the Schuele Street area of the East Side of Buffalo, is believed to be responsible for multiple acts of violence and the distribution of illegal narcotics including cocaine, crack cocaine, and marijuana.
Robbins is one of 28 Schuele Boys Gang members, associates, and other individuals arrested in this case. To date, 19 of the 28 charged have been convicted. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
Today’s sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Adam S. Cohen.
