Deandre “DD” Miles will spend 95 months in federal prison for fentanyl distribution, court records show.
United States District Judge Louise Flanagan sentenced Miles Tuesday to the nearly 8-year prison term Tuesday after he took a plea deal in September of 2019 in which he admitted to possession with intent to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl.
An associate of Miles, Terry Kearney, received a 5-year prison sentence in January for heroin trafficking.
Documents filed in the federal court system linked the men to heroin and fentanyl distribution in the Roanoke Valley.
Miles will serve five years of supervised release at the end of his sentence. Additional conditions of his release following completion of the sentence include not incurring new credit charges or opening additional lines of credit and providing the probation office with access to any requested financial information.
Miles was initially arrested in December of 2018.
At the time of his arrest the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office received information which showed Miles was a major supplier of heroin and fentanyl in Halifax and Northampton counties and was known to make several trips to locations including South Carolina to pick up large amounts of narcotics and bring them back to the Warner Bridge Road area of Northampton County.
