Michael K. William

The fatal quantity of fentanyl-laced heroin of Michael K. Williams was sold by a Brooklyn narcotics dealer who pleaded guilty in April. He was given a ten-year jail sentence.

10 Years in Prison

US District Judge Ronnie Abrams sentenced Irvin Cartagena of Aibonito, Puerto Rico.

In April, Cartagena admitted guilty to planning to distribute cocaine. Cartagena admitted, as part of a plea bargain, that some of the medicines he sold contributed to the demise of Michael K. Williams.

Michael K. Williams overdosed one day after buying the drugs in his Brooklyn luxury residence in September 2021.

Authorities claim that Michael K. Williams transacted on a sidewalk in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg district while being caught on camera buying the heroin from Cartagena.

Irvin “Green Eyes” Cartagena was found guilty of “conspiring to distribute heroin, fentanyl, and fentanyl analogue,” and as a result, received a ten-year sentence with five years of supervised release, according to a statement issued by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York on Friday.

Mr. Michael K. Williams unfortunately passed away after consuming the pills that Cartagena offered him, according to US Attorney Damian Williams. Cartagena and his accomplices continued to market and distribute potentially dangerous fentanyl-laced heroin despite the fact that their substance had already taken one life. This Office will resolutely keep up its enforcement efforts against dishonest drug traffickers who smuggle poison and worsen the fentanyl epidemic.

Cartagena released a statement before being sentenced, in which he expressed his regret for his acts. We never intended for anyone to lose their life when we sold the medicines.

When Cartagena wasn’t doing drugs himself, people who knew him described him as “helpful, humble, and hardworking,” according to Abrams.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams remarked that individuals involved in the drug sale to Michael K. Williams were aware that someone else had passed away from the substances they were selling.

Cartagena and others still sold the heroin even after Michael K. Williams died from the substance.

Cartagena’s defense lawyer, Sean Maher, said in a document submitted before the jury’s decision that his client received heroin in exchange for his street sales, which he used to support his own addiction.

Maher stated that Michael K. Williams received the small packet of cocaine from Mr. Cartagena in a tragic moment; any of the other individuals present or in the area selling the same drugs may have easily done so.

One day after the hand-to-hand exchange took place outside of a Brooklyn apartment in the Williamsburg neighborhood, the late actor and producer was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on September 6, 2021.

In February 2022, Cartagena was later detained in Puerto Rico.

In April 2023, Surrounded, a Western drama, made its debut as the last on-screen of  Michael K. Williams.
