Springfield Man Sentenced for Distributing Crack Cocaine and Marijuana

BOSTON – A Springfield man was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court in Springfield for selling crack cocaine and marijuana.


Aaron Smith, 33, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark Mastroianni to 37 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In September 2015, Smith pleaded guilty to one count of distributing crack cocaine and two counts of distributing marijuana. The charges relate to Smith’s sale of the drugs to an undercover officer in October 2013.


Smith had been previously convicted of a variety of crimes and was found by Judge Mastroianni to be a “career offender” under the United States Sentencing Guidelines.


Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb and Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin O’Regan, Chief of Weinreb’s Springfield Office, prosecuted the case.
