Kassim Marsh, 30, formerly of Manchester, New Hampshire was sentenced this week for his role in a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy. Senior U.S. District Judge William K. Sessions III sentenced Marsh to 40 months of imprisonment, to be followed by a three-year term of supervised release. Judge Sessions also sentenced Marsh to a concurrent 18-month term of imprisonment for a related supervised release violation, stemming from a prior federal narcotics conviction.
According to court records, Marsh conspired to distribute methamphetamine in the spring of 2021. He had returned to drug trafficking shortly after his release from federal prison following a prior sentence for conspiring to distribute heroin and cocaine. Authorities arrested Marsh in May after he sold $2,000 of methamphetamine to an undercover Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent. He has remained in custody since his arrest. His brother, Jahlil Marsh—also his co-defendant in his prior federal drug-trafficking case—pleaded guilty to a related drug conspiracy charge earlier this year and was sentenced to 60 months in prison on December 3.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Spencer Willig prosecuted this case, which was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations. The defendant is represented by Robert L. Sussman, Esq.
