Schenectady Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Crack Distribution

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Jayquan Tomer, age 25, of Schenectady, New York, was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine.

 

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Vadim D. Thomas, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

 

Senior United States District Judge Lawrence E. Kahn also imposed an 8-year term of supervised release, to begin after Tomer’s release from prison, and ordered him to forfeit $3,000 in proceeds from his crimes.

 

As part of his plea, Tomer admitted that he conspired with others to distribute and did distribute a total of 43 grams of crack cocaine to another person in Schenectady on three occasions in August 2013.

 

This case was investigated by the FBI and its Capital District Safe Streets Task Force, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean O’Dowd.
