Sebastian Batista, 27, faces 63 months in prison after a conviction for possession with intent to distribute 40 grams or more of fentanyl.

According to the US Attorney’s office, over the course of several phone calls, Batista agreed to sell 200 grams of fentanyl to a cooperating witness on February 28, 2019. When Batista arrived at a scheduled meeting, he was arrested.
