Albany Man Pleads Guilty To Oxycodone Conspiracy
ALBANY, N.Y. - - Salvatore Commisso, 33, of Albany, New York, pleaded guilty today to conspiring to distribute the controlled substance oxycodone.
The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Special Agent in Charge James J. Hunt, New York Division, U.S. Drug Enforcement (DEA).
Commisso faces up to 20 years in prison and three years of supervised release when he is sentenced on January 24, 2017 by U.S. District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and other factors.
As part of his plea, Commisso admitted that from at least December 2015 through February 2016, he obtained approximately 745 oxycodone tablets from a co-conspirator for resale in the Northern District of New York.
This case was investigated by the DEA and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Coffman.
