BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- United States Attorney's office announced Wednesday the sentencing of a Maine woman for drug-related offenses. Tara Pelletier, 33, of Skowhega, received four years in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiring to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute oxycodone and cocaine. Pelletier pled guilty to the charge on April 30, 2013.
The conviction stemmed from a major drug trafficking organization investigation. Court records show that Pelletier had assisted the head of the trafficking organization, Maurice McCray, between January and May 2012. She obtained oxycodone and cocaine from New York and distributed the drugs throughout central Maine. A three-month wiretap revealed McCray's organization and Pelletier's involvement.
U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency conducted the investigation.
