PLATTSBURGH, NEW YORK – On October 16, 2014, ROBERTO DELGADO, 35, of Ossining, New York was sentenced to 151 months in federal prison by United States District Court Judge Glenn Suddaby in Syracuse, New York announced United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Drug Enforcement Administration Acting Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt.

United States Attorney Hartunian said, “Keeping the supply of illegal drugs out of our communities is essential. We praise the work of our partner law enforcement agencies.”

“This sentencing is a result of collaboration between law enforcement to identify, investigate and arrest those responsible for supplying cocaine to our communities,” said DEA Acting Special Agent in Charge Hunt.

In March 2013, Delgado pled guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine in the Northern District of New York, specifically in the Lake Placid area.

The sentence also includes a $15,000 fine, an eight year term of supervised release after the defendant completes his 151 month term of imprisonment, and a $100 special assessment.
