Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Eugene Moulton, 67, and Antoinette Perreault, 48, both of Harmony, Maine, were sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge Jon D. Levy for conspiring to distribute cocaine.  Moulton was sentenced to three years in prison and three years of supervised release.  Perreault was sentenced to 20 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Both pleaded guilty on July 20, 2016. 

According to court records, the defendants participated for about three years in a conspiracy run by Roger Belanger and his daughter, Kelli Mujo, that existed between January 2002 and November 2014, to acquire cocaine in Rhode Island and distribute it in the Dexter area.  The defendants acquired cocaine from Mujo and distributed it in the Harmony area.  Moulton also traded cocaine for stolen property.  On August 19, 2016, Belanger and Mujo were convicted following a jury trial and await sentencing.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, with assistance provided by the Dexter Police Department, the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office, and the Maine State Police.
