Portland, Maine:  Acting United States Attorney Richard W. Murphy announced that Darnell Robinson, a/k/a “Butta,” age 30, of Auburn, Maine was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Chief Judge Nancy Torresen to eight years in prison and three years of supervised release for distributing heroin. He pled guilty on January 12, 2017.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Maine State Police, the Lewiston and Auburn Police Departments and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
