PORTLAND, Maine: A Biddeford woman was sentenced today in federal court on methamphetamine trafficking charges, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.
U.S. District Judge D. Brock Hornby sentenced Kailey Prejean, 25, to two years in prison and three years of supervised release. Prejean pleaded guilty on October 14, 2020, to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, and two counts of distribution of a controlled substance.
According to court records, on July 12, 2019, Prejean sold $250 worth of methamphetamine to an undercover officer in a parking lot in Biddeford. On July 17, 2019, Prejean sold a half-ounce of methamphetamine to the same undercover officer in the same parking lot. On July 24, 2019, the undercover officer arranged to buy one ounce of methamphetamine from Prejean at the same location. On that date, she was accompanied by her co-defendant, Antonio Morrissey. When the two were arrested, Morrissey was found to be armed with a loaded firearm and had approximately one ounce of methamphetamine on his person.
Morrissey pleaded guilty on November 12, 2020, and is awaiting sentencing.
