Two men sentenced to federal prison time in heroin, meth case

Two men were sentenced earlier this month to more than a decade each in federal prison after pleading guilty to drug charges, according to court documents.

Darrik Omar Frazier and Kourvoisier Frazier both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute at least 100 grams of heroin and at least 50 grams of methamphetamine. Darrik Frazier also pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

The sentencing was imposed Nov. 12, with Kourvoisier Frazier receiving 16.5 years in federal prison and Darrik Frazier receiving 15 years in federal prison.

Darrik and Kourvoisier Frazier were charged in the same indictment as Michelle Dawn Dorsey, of Demorest, who was sentenced to 7 years in prison earlier this month.

Darrik Frazier’s attorney Suzanne Hashimi declined to comment, and Kourvoisier Frazier’s attorney Benjamin Alper did not respond to a request for comment. 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in August 2017 alleged Dorsey and others sold heroin in White and Habersham counties.

“Two heroin users allegedly overdosed on heroin they obtained from Dorsey, but they were revived after being administered Naloxone by emergency medical personnel in White County in one instance and Habersham County in the other … Both overdose victims likely would have died, but for the life saving measures taken by medical professionals,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

After their prison sentences, both men will be on supervised release for five years.

According to the sentencing documents, Darrik Frazier shall be allowed to participate in the residential drug abuse program during his incarceration.
