Guilford Man Sentenced To Three Years For Distributing Heroin
FEB 16 - BANGOR, 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 Joshua Bickmore, 30, of Guilford, Maine was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to three years in prison and three years of supervised release for distributing heroin. He pleaded guilty to this charge on July 12, 2016.
According to court records, on August 13, 2015, Bickmore met with an undercover law enforcement officer and a confidential informant at the Cambridge, Maine General Store to sell heroin. Bickmore sold thirteen wax baggies of heroin in exchange for $390.
At sentencing, when describing Bickmore’s involvement with heroin, Judge Woodcock said that, “it doesn’t have to be this way” and that it was time for Bickmore “to man-up” and pursue legitimate employment.
The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Greenville Police Department.
