Louisiana – On January 11, 2022, United States District Judge Susie Morgan sentenced Corey Dunn, age 49, to eighty-seven (87) months in the Bureau of Prisons for conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute cocaine base, a schedule II drug-controlled substance, during the commission of a drug trafficking crime, in violation of the Federal Controlled Substances Act, announced U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans.

Dunn was charged on August 29, 2019, and pled guilty on June 15, 2021. He pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute cocaine base, a schedule II drug-controlled substance, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 846, 841(a)(1), and 841(b)(1)(B). Dunn’s sentence will be followed by four (4) years of supervised release. He was also sentenced to pay a $100 mandatory special assessment fee.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), which is the focal point of the Department of Justice’s efforts to reduce violent crime. PSN is an evidence-based program that has been shown to reduce violent crime. PSN brings together a diverse range of stakeholders to identify the most pressing violent crime issues in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and collaborates with community-based prevention and reentry programs to achieve long-term crime reductions.

US Attorney Duane A. Evans commended the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Gretna Police Department for their efforts. Assistant United States Attorneys Brittany Reed, André Jones, and Melissa Bücher handled the prosecution.
