Prison Sentence in Drug Case

Damian Martin was adjudicated guilty and sentenced to 6 years in prison for two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent, two counts of Possession of
a Controlled Substance, Possession of Paraphernalia, and Possession of a Place with Knowledge of Trafficking, Sale or Manufacture of a Controlled Substance.

The defendant pled as charged, just after a jury was selected and trial was about to get underway, this afternoon in Collier County.

Martin was arrested in November 2019, after a search warrant was served by the Collier County Sheriff’s Office Vice and Narcotics Bureau, at a residential address in Naples. Inside the home, among the defendant’s belongings in a bedroom, various illegal narcotics were found. Deputies found Fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, and Alprazolam.

The Sheriff’s Office also found a hard drive in the home for a surveillance system, hooked up to a television. A search warrant was done for the hard drive and camera. The videos showed multiple
drug transactions taking place in the bedroom over the course of several days.

Assistant State Attorney Brock Frazier and Assistant State Attorney Jose Cabrera prosecuted the case.
