ROCHESTER, N.Y.- U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Nolan Rogers, 32, of Lisbon, CT, who was convicted of possession of fentanyl, was sentenced to time served and one year supervised release by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marian W. Payson.

During a pat-down, 20 small bags were removed by the officer from the Rogers pocket, and Rogers told the officer that the bags contained fentanyl. Laboratory testing confirmed that the substance was fentanyl.
The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Sean J. Smith; and the Bath Veterans Affairs Police Department, under the direction of Chief Joseph Day.
Assistance was also provided by the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Sheriff James L. Allard; and the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Ray Donovan, New York Field Division.
