Fentany Dealer Sentenced to Prison
A 28-year-old Onset Fentanyl dealer arrested in New Bedford while already out on bail for for committing the same crime in Plymouth County was sentenced to serve three years in state prison on Monday, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III announced.
Kayla Boutilier pleaded guilty in Fall River Superior Court to an indictment charging her with possession with intent to distribute fentanyl.
On September 19, 2019, Massachusetts State Police pulled over a vehicle the defendant was a passenger in because the car had an expired inspection sticker and no license plates lights.
When the state trooper approached the vehicle, he observed hypodermic needles on the rear floorboard of the car. At that point, the Trooper asked the driver and the defendant to exit the vehicle. While the defendant was in the area of the hood of the car, she dropped a 16 gram bag of Fentanyl. Police also found a cut straw with a white powder stuck inside of it, in her jacket pocket.
At the time of this incident, the defendant was already out on bail from an April 2019 arrest in Plymouth County on charges of possession with intent to distribute Fentanyl and illegal possession of ammunition.
“This case is yet another example of a defendant committing a serious crime while out on bail for the same offense,” District Attorney Quinn said.
