Brockton Man Sentenced on Narcotics Offense
February 8, 2012

BOSTON...A Brockton man was sentenced today in federal court on a distribution of cocaine base charge.

Frank Miranda, 33, was sentenced today by U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole, Jr., to 92 months in prison to be followed by six years of supervised release after Miranda pled guilty on Sep. 14, 2011, to one count of distribution of over 5 grams of cocaine base. Had the case proceeded to trial, the evidence would have proven that on or about July 9, 2009 Miranda sold 6.0 grams of crack cocaine in Brockton to an undercover cooperating witness in exchange for $350.00.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Richard DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - Boston Field Division; Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz; Colonel Marian McGovern, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; and Chief William K. Conlon of the Brockton Police Department made the announcement today. The case was being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne Sullivan of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
