COVINGTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that a St. Tammany Parish jury convicted Anthony J. Chaney, 33, of Slidell, Wednesday (Nov. 6) of two counts of Distribution of Heroin.
Chaney faces from five to 40 years in prison on each count, but as a multiple offender, he could face more time. He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 3 by District Judge Raymond Childress.
Chaney was the target of a narcotics investigation by the Louisiana State Police in August 2017, and an undercover trooper conducted two buys from Chaney.
Chaney has multiple prior convictions, including Attempted Disarming of a Police Officer, Simple Burglary, a domestic violence case from Texas, as well as multiple possession of marijuana convictions. He also has a new pending felony charge in Orleans Parish for Second Degree Battery and Domestic Abuse Battery Involving Strangulation.
Assistant District Attorneys Blake Peters and Luke Lancaster prosecuted the case. The trial lasted two days.
