Massachusetts Man Sentenced On Drug Charge

 CONCORD, N.H. – James Murphy, 30, of Massachusetts, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to 5years in prison for possession with the intent to distribute in excess of 28 grams of crack cocaine, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

            On February 3, 2013, Murphy was pulled over on Interstate 95 near Spaulding, New Hampshire, for driving erratically and disobeying a police officer.  A subsequent search of Murphy’s person resulted in the discovery of a substantial amount of crack cocaine, bagged for distribution.

            This prosecution arose from an investigation by the Nashua, New Hampshire Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Nick Abramson.
