Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that
Jermaine Johnson, 40, of Lewiston, Maine, was sentenced on Thursday to 130 months in jail and
6 years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute oxycodone. Johnson pled
guilty plea to the charges on September 25, 2013.

According to Court records, Johnson was stopped by law enforcement agents in Sabattus,
Maine and found to be in possession of 121 oxycodone pills. Agents then seized over $16,000
from Johnson’s residence. Johnson was found responsible for distributing nearly 4,000
oxycodone pills in 2013. At sentencing, the Court determined that Johnson was a career
offender, which subjected him to enhanced penalties.

This case was investigated by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the Maine State
Police, and the Lewiston Police Department.
