BOSTON — A New Bedford man pleaded guilty in federal court last week to his role in a cocaine trafficking conspiracy after he and co-conspirators arranged a large drug deal with federal agents.

Orrin Guidry, 26, pleaded guilty on Wednesday, Sept. 15 to cocaine possession and conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Guidry was charged in October 2020 following an investigation into a drug trafficking organization led by his co-conspirator Jason Valliere.

During the investigation, Guidry and two other co-conspirators helped Valliere coordinate a multi-kilogram drug deal with undercover agents.

Guidry accepted cash payment in advance and agreed to wear a disguise for the anticipated drug deal, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

He also said he would serve as a lookout and armed manpower during the drug exchange.

In August, Valliere was sentenced to five years in prison and four years of supervised release.

A sentencing date for Guidry has not yet been scheduled.
