San Antonio Man Indicted for Distributing Fentanyl Resulting in Death

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio man stands charged with distributing a controlled substance containing fentanyl that resulted in a person’s overdose death in October of last year. 

A four-count federal grand jury indictment returned this afternoon charges 27-year-old Patrick James Hall with one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl resulting in death; one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl resulting in death; and two counts of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl.  

The indictment alleges that on October 28, 2020, the defendant possessed and sold fentanyl-laced pills to the victim who died after ingesting them.  The indictment also alleges that the defendant possessed with intent to distribute fentanyl on October 26, 2020 and November 19, 2020.

U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Hoff and Special Agent in Charge Daniel C. Comeaux of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Houston Field Office made today’s announcement.

Upon conviction, Hall faces between 20 years and life in federal prison for the conspiracy and substantive charges alleging a result of death and up to 20 years in federal prison for each of the remaining two drug charges.

The DEA, with assistance from the San Antonio Police Department, investigated this case.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy Marie Hail is prosecuting this case.

An indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
