Chicopee Man, Steven Brown Sentenced for Selling Heroin

A Chicopee man was sentenced today in federal court in Springfield for distributing heroin.

Steven Brown, 28, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to time served (three months) in prison and six years of supervised release. In October 2018, Brown pleaded guilty to one count of distribution and possession with intent to distribute heroin.

“In the midst of an opioid epidemic killing thousands of people a year, we are disappointed that the court gave a convicted, repeat [heroin] trafficker time served instead of the 15 years sought by the government,” said U.S. Attorney Andrew E. Lelling.

On June 30, 2016, Brown sold 300 bags of heroin to a cooperating witness. Brown has previously been convicted in state court of drug distribution offenses six times between 2008 and 2013, and he was facing state drug charges at the time of this offense.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Office; Colonel Kerry A. Gilpin, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri; and Holyoke Police Chief James M. Neiswanger made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd E. Newhouse of Lelling’s Springfield Branch Office prosecuted the case.
