Sentences given out for multi-state drug trafficking

Drug-related offenses can stretch all the way up the east coast, from New York to Maine, as people in nearby New Hampshire may recently have seen in the news. A drug ring in Bangor was centered around selling crack cocaine, but some of the dealers were based out of New York. They had been working with cocaine users and with other dealers in Maine, thanks to a man who helped the two sides meet up, allowing the ring to flourish.

That man was sent to a U.S. District Court, and he admitted his role in the process. As a result, the judge gave him a sentence of five years. Another man who was involved but who was from New York got just over eight months. After the men are released, they also have to be supervised for the next three years.

When the two parties met up and started working together, reports show that much more crack cocaine started flowing into the Bangor area, being transported there from New York. The headquarters for the operation in Bangor was down on Ohio Street, in a duplex.

The raid that exposed the two men happened back in 2011, though the sentences have just now been given out. In addition to catching the two of them, police were able to pick up roughly two dozen other individuals who they say were involved to varying degrees.

No matter what state lines an alleged crime may cross or what drug charges people are facing, all people in New Hampshire and neighboring states deserve to have fair trials where their rights are respected.
