Nashua Man Sentenced To Ten Years In Federal Prison For Selling "Crack" Cocaine

    CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –Sean Brown, 40, of Nashua, New Hampshire was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to ten years in prison after a jury found him guilty of three counts of unlawful distribution of cocaine base (“crack”), announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.

            During February, 2010, Brown made three sales of cocaine base (“crack”) to an individual assisting the Nashua, New Hampshire Police Department in their investigation into the illegal sale of drugs within the city. The three sales took place in the vicinity of 73 Elm Street, which was Brown’s residence at the time. Brown was arrested outside of the residence on February 24, 2010 as police executed a search warrant on his residence.

            In sentencing Brown to a ten year sentence, Judge McAuliffe noted that while Brown dealt small quantities of drugs, he was a “persistent” drug dealer, having been previously convicted in federal court in 1997 with unlawful possession with the intent to distribute cocaine base (“crack”), heroin and methamphetamine, for which he received a 46 month term of imprisonment in federal prison, and again in Hillsborough County Superior Court in 2005 for four counts of unlawful sale of heroin, for which he received a 3 ½ to 7 year sentence in the New Hampshire State Prison.

             The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Cole Davis and Seth Aframe.
