New Orleans Man Sentenced In Heroin-Trafficking Conspiracy

NEW ORLEANS –  U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced yesterday that ANTWINE SMITH, age 42, of New Orleans, was sentenced today after pleading guilty to one count of conspiring to traffic one kilogram or more of heroin in the Eastern District of Louisiana.  United States District Judge Carl J.
