Convicted Felon Sentenced On Drug And Firearm Charges
MAR 28 - BOSTON - A Southbridge man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Worcester in connection with being a felon in possession of a firearm, distributing drugs and attempted money laundering.
Alehandros Medina, 25, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Hillman to five years in prison and three years of supervised release. In October 2016, Medina pleaded guilty to distribution of cocaine, ketamine, (commonly referred to as ecstasy) and Methylone; being a felon in possession of a firearm; and attempted money laundering.
On several occasions between November 2014 and October 2015, Medina sold cocaine, MDMA, Methylone, and ketamine to an undercover federal agent, while on state probation for multiple charges of possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.
In August 2015, Medina traveled to Oregon and was stopped by police who confiscated approximately $22,000 from Medina that he intended to use to purchase marijuana. In October 2015, federal agents arrested Medina in Southbridge as he was delivering cocaine to an undercover agent. Later that day, agents seized cocaine and a loaded .38 caliber revolver from Medina’s residence.
Michal J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England; Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb; and Southbridge Police Chief Shane Woodson made the announcement.
