Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced today that
Joshua Snow, 30, of Lynn, Massachusetts was sentenced in U.S. District Court by Judge D.
Brock Hornby to 12 years in jail and 6 years of supervised release for possession with intent to
distribute oxycodone. Snow pled guilty to the charge on May 9, 2013.

According to Court records, on January 29, 2013, Snow was stopped by Maine State
Police troopers and found to be in possession of 500 oxycodone pills. Snow admitted the pills
were his and that he intended to distribute them. At sentencing, Judge Hornby found Snow to be
a career offender which subjected him to enhanced sentencing penalties.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Maine
State Police, and the Scarborough Police Department.
