Nesspor Sentenced to Prison for Oxycontin Trafficking Conspiracy

SEP 19 (HARRISBURG, Pa.) - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a 54-year-old West Lawn, Pennsylvania resident was sentenced to one year in prison today by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Edwin M. Kosik for his role in an Oxycontin trafficking conspiracy that operated in Schuylkill and Berks County in 2011.

According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Stephen Nesspor previously admitted to conspiring with at least two others to unlawfully distribute 80mg Oxycontin pills.

Nesspor was indicted by a federal grand jury in September 2011, as a result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Pennsylvania State Police.

Judge Kosik also ordered Nesspor to pay a $500 fine and a $100 special assessment. Nesspor will be on supervised release for three years after serving his prison sentence.

Two of Nesspor’s co-defendants previously entered guilty pleas in the case. Richard Law was sentenced to 15 months in prison. Michael Beaver pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Francis P. Sempa.
