Massachusetts: Kayvon Lovejo sentenced to less than 2 years for dealing crack

A Springfield man was sentenced today in federal court in Springfield for distributing crack cocaine.

Kayvon Lovejoy, 26, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to 17 months in prison and six years of supervised release. In May 2018, Lovejoy pleaded guilty to two counts of distribution of crack cocaine. Lovejoy was arrested in February 2018 and has been in custody since.

Lovejoy distributed crack cocaine on Aug. 9, 2017, and Aug. 15, 2017. On each occasion, Lovejoy sold approximately two grams of crack cocaine for $160 to a government witness.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Harold H. Shaw, 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 Manny Febo made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Neil L. Desroches of Lelling’s Springfield Branch Office prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
