Princeton Man Pleads Guilty to Illegally Distributing Crack

Bangor, Maine:  A Princeton man pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Bangor to distributing cocaine base (crack), United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

According to court records, on April 25, 2019, Robert McKenna, 48, sold crack to an undercover agent from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency at a residence in Indian Township, Maine. 

McKenna faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine.  He also faces between three years and a lifetime of supervised release. 

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the FBI investigated the case.

The prosecution is a result of the ongoing efforts by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Program, a partnership between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. The OCDETF mission is to identify, investigate and prosecute high-level members of drug trafficking enterprises, bringing together the combined expertise and unique abilities of federal, state and local law enforcement.
