New York Man Convicted Of Conspiracy To Distribute Oxycodone And Oxymorphone
PORTLAND, Maine - Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Damian Corbett, 40, of New Rochelle, New York, was found guilty in U.S. District Court following a two-day jury trial of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and oxymorphone.
According to court records, on December 16, 2014, federal agents and task force officers seized approximately 1,000 oxycodone and oxymorphone pills at the home of a North Berwick, Maine resident. Investigators learned that, since at least June 2013, Corbett had been supplying those pills to the resident who, in turn, distributed them in southern Maine. On December 19, 2014, Corbett was arrested shortly after he met with the resident and agents seized about $2,500 that he had just been paid for a delivery. Corbett faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine. He will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation office.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Portsmouth Tactical Diversion Squad, North Berwick Police Department, Maine State Police, and York County Sheriff’s Office.
