Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Brian
Wilkerson, 36, of Dorchester, Massachusetts was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by
Judge George Z. Singal to 15 years in prison and eight years of supervised release for conspiring
to distribute cocaine. Wilkerson pleaded guilty on October 28, 2013.

According to court records, from early 2012 until June 2013, Wilkerson supplied
kilogram quantities of cocaine to David Goyette in Auburn, Maine. Goyette and others
distributed the cocaine to customers in the greater Lewiston/Auburn area. Goyette pleaded guilty
to conspiracy and cocaine distribution charges on August 29, 2014 and awaits sentencing.

This case results from a joint investigation conducted by the United States Drug
Enforcement Administration, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the Lewiston and Auburn
Police Departments and the ongoing effort of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task
Forces (OCDETF), a partnership between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. The
principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious
drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations, and those primarily
responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply.
