Durrer reappointed as a Special Assistant United States Attorney

Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Dale Durrer has been reappointed as a Special Assistant United States Attorney in the Western District of Virginia for a one-year term. Durrer has served as a Special Assistant United States Attorney since December 2007. The appointment means that Durrer can prosecute violations of federal law that occur in Culpeper in the Western District of Virginia.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Paul Walther stated that “Durrer’s reappointment allows our office to continue the close working relationship we have developed with the U.S. Attorney's office for the Western District of Virginia, and furthers our coordinated efforts with federal authorities to combat illegal drug and firearms trafficking in Culpeper.”

In late 2011, Durrer assisted the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia in prosecuting more than a dozen men and women who imported and sold PCP in Culpeper

The Blue Ridge Task Force and federal law enforcement agencies brought charges against 13 defendants – from the leaders of the conspiracy, Emmanuel Huggins and Ajamu Azim-Hinton, on down to the street-level sellers. Mr. Huggins received a 150 month sentence in federal prison for distributing PCP in Culpeper.

Huggins and Hinton were the last of more than a dozen defendants to admit guilt in a conspiracy that sold over 100 grams of PCP in and around Culpeper. On the day the Blue Ridge Narcotics Task Force offices arrested many of these drug-dealers, Task Force office seized sixteen ounces of liquid PCP, or nearly 500 grams.
