Bridgewater Man Pleads Guilty After Being Found with 420 Grams of Heroin


BOSTON – A Bridgewater man pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Boston to heroin trafficking charges.

Kevin Viveiros, 31, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin. U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs scheduled sentencing for Jan. 4, 2018.

On Jan. 19, 2017, Viveiros possessed and intended to distribute heroin in Bridgewater. At the time of his arrest, Viveiros was found in possession of approximately 420 grams of heroin, narcotics packaging materials and over $4,000.

The charging statute provides for a sentence of no greater than 40 years in prison, a lifetime of supervised release, and a fine of $5 million. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb; Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Mickey D. Leadingham, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, Boston Field Division; and Colonel Richard D. McKeon, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Emily O. Cannon of Weinreb’s Organized Crime and Gang Unit is prosecuting the case.
