U.S. v A.L.
Potential Sentence: 168-210 Months
Actual Sentence: 110 Months
The defendant was a doctor who pled guilty to distributing and possessing with intent to distribute fentanyl. The government painted the defendant as a “doctor drug dealer” but the truth was something far different. He was an addict who supplied his best friend and fellow addict who subsequently overdosed and died. The judge cited the video as persuasive that this case was not nearly as egregious as the government painted it, and substantially departed from the recommended guideline.
