Schenectady Man Sentenced For Crack Distribution

ALBANY, N.Y. - James J. Hunt, the Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement (DEA) and Acting United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith announced that Nicholas “Netti” Khan, 24, of Schenectady, New York, was sentenced today to 92 months in prison for distributing crack cocaine.
Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy also imposed a four-year term of supervised release, to begin after Khan’s release from prison.

In July 2016, following a three-day trial, a jury in Binghamton convicted Khan of distributing crack cocaine on four occasions in Schenectady from July to September 2013. 

Khan is serving a term of imprisonment of 25 years to life in state prison for a 2014 murder conviction.  The 92-month federal sentence issued today will begin after Khan is finished serving the murder sentence.

This case was investigated by the DEA, Albany District Office and the Colonie Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Emmet O’Hanlon.
