Canaan Woman Sentenced to 70 Months for Distributing Fentanyl, Heroin, Cocaine and Crack
Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Toni Juliano, 30, of Canaan, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 70 months in prison and five years of supervised release for possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl, heroin, cocaine and cocaine base, commonly known as “crack.” The defendant pled guilty on December 11, 2017.
According to court records, on September 6, 2017, officers seized about 173 grams of heroin, 60 grams of crack and 113 grams of cocaine from the defendant’s hotel room. On September 27, 2017, officers seized about 100 grams of heroin, 91 grams of fentanyl, 88 grams of cocaine, and $38,222 from a second hotel room used by the defendant. At the time of the two seizures, the defendant was on bail and awaiting sentencing on a state charge of unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs.
In imposing the sentence, Judge Woodcock described Juliano as “major drug dealer in Central Maine” who was responsible for distributing a “staggering” amount of controlled drugs.
The case was investigated by the Waterville Police Department with assistance provided by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Attorney General’s Office, and prosecuted as part of the Department of Justice’s Strategy to Combat the Opioid Epidemic.
