Newport Heroin Dealer Gets 12-Year Prison Sentence

A Newport man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute heroin and fentanyl.
 
Frederick D. Lewis, 38, was sentenced to 150 months behind bars by U.S. District Judge David Bunning this week.
 
In February, Lewis admitted to leading a conspiracy of five or more people responsible for distributing 100 grams of heroin and more than 160 grams of fentanyl.
 
He had been on supervised release for a 2011 conviction for conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine. Lewis's 150-minth sentence includes a 30-month sentence for violating terms of that supervised release.
