Jury convicts Schenectady man of crack cocaine distribution

Binghamton, NEW YORK – A jury on Wednesday voted to convict Nicholas Khan, age 23, of Schenectady, New York, of distribution of crack cocaine. 

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division, Drug Enforcement Administration. 

The jury convicted Khan following a three-day trial in Binghamton.  Khan faces up to 20 years in prison, and a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of at least 3 years and up to life, when he is sentenced on October 26, 2016 by Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy.  Khan is already serving a state term of imprisonment of 25 years to life for an October 2014 murder conviction. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Colonie Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kofi Sansculotte.
