Jury Convicts Schenectady Man Of Crack Cocaine Distribution
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A jury voted Wednesday to convict Nicholas Khan, 23, of Schenectady, New York, of crack cocaine distribution.
The announcement was made by Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, U.S. Drug Enforcement (DEA) New York Division and United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian, Northern District of New York.
The jury convicted Khan following a three-day trial in Binghamton. Khan faces up to 20 years in prison and a term of post-imprisonment supervised release of at least three years and up to life when he is sentenced on October 26, 2016 by Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy. Khan is already serving a state term of imprisonment of 25 years to life for an October 2014 murder conviction.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Colonie Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kofi Sansculotte.
