BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced today that Gerrit Mora, 22, of Brockport, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute MDMA (“Ecstasy”), was sentenced to time-served, six months of home confinement, and two years of supervised release by Senior U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank T. Pimentel, who handled the case, stated that on March 7, 2014, Mora took delivery in Niagara Falls, NY of a package that he had ordered online from Brussels, Belgium. The package contained nearly nine ounces of MDMA. At approximately 8:15 p.m. that evening, law enforcement officers pulled Mora over in the vehicle he was driving in West Seneca, NY and seized the package.
The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero.
