(BUFFALO, N.Y.) - James J. Hunt, the Special Agent in Charge of the New York Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced that Colette Arne, 67, of Lockport, NY, who was convicted of possession with intent to distribute, and distribution of oxymorphone, a Schedule II controlled substance, was sentenced to two years supervised release by Senior U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura A.

The prescriptions were issued to the defendant and her now-deceased husband.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division.
