BANGOR, Maine – A Lincolnville man was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Bangor to 37 months in federal prison for his role in a cocaine distribution ring that stretched from Mexico to the Bronx to coastal Maine.

Michael Dunn, 42, also was sentenced to three years of supervised release after he completes his prison term.

U.S. District Judge John Woodcock recommended Dunn receive treatment and counseling for his drug addiction while in prison and on supervised release.

The judge said he was sentencing Dunn to the low end of the federal sentencing guidelines range because he committed his crimes to feed his own addiction to cocaine and because Dunn was truly remorseful for what he had done the impact it has had on his wife, son and other family members.

Dunn

pleaded guilty in September to possession of cocaine and conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Under the sentencing guidelines, he faced between 37 and

46 months in prison. Dunn was arrested in March after he sold cocaine to an undercover federal drug agent, according to court documents.

Four others

have been charged in federal court in Maine in connection with the cocaine distribution ring.
