Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Jackie Madore, 46, of Rockland was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to 110 months in prison and three years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute and possess with the intent to cocaine base, commonly known as “crack.”

According to court records, between January 2010 and August 2013, the defendant conspired to distribute almost a kilogram of crack in Penobscot County and elsewhere.  She sold half-gram bags for $50 and gram bags for $100. She transferred the proceeds of her sales to her source of supply in the New Haven, Connecticut area and got cash and crack in exchange.  The crack was transported from Connecticut to the Bangor area by other conspirators.  Members of the conspiracy from New Haven included members of the Red Side Guerilla Brims, a violent street gang affiliated with the Almighty Blood Nation, a national street gang. 

The case was investigated by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and the New Haven, Connecticut Office of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the City of New Haven Department of Police Services.
