Washington County Man Sentenced for Distributing Cocaine Base

BANGOR, Maine:  A Princeton, Maine man was sentenced today in federal court in Bangor for distributing cocaine base, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Robert McKenna, 50, to 135 months in prison and three years of supervised release. McKenna pleaded guilty on January 21, 2020.

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

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.
