New York Woman and Charlton Woman Sentenced for Oxycodone Conspiracy

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

BOSTON – A New York woman and Charlton woman were sentenced today in federal court in Worcester for their roles in an oxycodone trafficking conspiracy.

Amina Young, 40, of New York, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Hillman to 30 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Jennifer Toledo, 46, of Charlton, was sentenced by Judge Hillman to eight months in prison and three years of supervised release, with the first four months to be served in home confinement. Young and Toledo each pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone in June 2018 and May 2017, respectively.

From August 2015 until April 2016, Toledo conspired with co-defendant John Tautenhan III to distribute oxycodone pills in and around Worcester County. On April 17, 2016, federal agents followed Toledo as she drove from Massachusetts to a restaurant in Yonkers, N.Y., to acquire oxycodone from Young. Five days later, on April 22, 2017, Toledo again drove to Yonkers to purchase additional oxycodone from Young. Investigators stopped the vehicle that Toledo was driving and seized over 500 oxycodone pills from Young and two other passengers.

Tautenhan III pleaded guilty and was sentenced in September 2017 to two years in prison.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Brian D. Boyle, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New England Field Division, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg A. Friedholm, Chief of Lelling’s Worcester Branch Office, prosecuted the case.
