ALBANY, NEW YORK – Jason C. Bishop, age 27, of Albany, New York, was sentenced today to time served (approximately 18 months of imprisonment), to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, for distributing oxycodone in Albany County. 


The announcement was made by Acting United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). 


As part of his March 17, 2017 guilty plea, Bishop admitted that he obtained prescribed oxycodone tablets from a pharmacy and then sold those tablets to Salvatore Commisso.  Commisso was sentenced in January 2017 to 36 months in prison for conspiring to distribute oxycodone.


This case was investigated by the DEA and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Coffman.
