Bucks County Man Sentenced To 140 Months’ Imprisonment For Methamphetamine Trafficking

HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Nicholas Eastman, age 32, of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on January 7, 2022, to 140 months’ imprisonment by U.S. District Court Judge Christopher C. Conner for drug trafficking.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, Eastman previously pleaded guilty to possessing at least 500 grams of methamphetamine for further distribution in the Middle and Eastern Districts of Pennsylvania between 2017 and 2019.  

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Pennsylvania State Police.  Assistant U.S. Attorney William Behe prosecuted the case.

This case was prosecuted as part of the joint federal, state, and local Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts.  PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime.  Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them.  As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
