York County Woman Sentenced To Five Years In Prison For Trafficking Methamphetamine

HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Nicole Botterbusch, age 32, of York, Pennsylvania, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Court Judge Jennifer P. Wilson to 60 months in prison for trafficking methamphetamine.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, on July 2, 2020, Botterbusch was stopped in a vehicle in York County, with over 400 grams of methamphetamine. She was in the car with her codefendant, Jeremy Michael Kohler.

Both Kohler and Botterbusch previously entered guilty pleas to drug trafficking. Kohler was previously sentenced by Judge Wilson to 130 months in prison for trafficking methamphetamine.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Consiglio is prosecuting the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles:fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
