Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Tara
Pelletier, 33, of Skowhegan, Maine, was sentenced today to 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.

Pelletier’s conviction stems from her involvement in a major drug trafficking
organization run by Maurice McCray in central Maine. Court records reveal that between
January and May 2012, Pelletier assisted McCray by obtaining oxycodone and cocaine from
New York and distributing the drugs to customers throughout central Maine. The charge
followed a three-month wiretap investigation that revealed McCray’s organization and the
involvement of Pelletier and others.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the
Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
