BANGOR, Maine — A Brewer man arrested last summer in a sting by local police and a federal Drug Enforcement Agency task force pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court to drug charges.
Douglas, aka “Dougie Fresh,” Morris, 19, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute oxycodone and possession with the intent to distribute oxycodone.
Morris was arrested along with four others in July by Brewer police after officers verified drugs were being sold out of a house on Blake Street. Originally, all were charged in state court.
In November, drug charges against Morris, Daniel Michaud, 22, of Bangor, and Jarrod Jamieson, 21, of Brewer were filed in federal court in Bangor, most likely due to the involvement of the federal task force. The state charges are expected to be dropped.
Brandon Gray, 20, of Holden pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug possession charge in August in Bangor District Court and paid a $400 fine. State charges against a fifth man, who has not been charged in federal court, were dismissed.
Jamieson pleaded guilty in January to the same federal felony charges to which Morris pleaded guilty.
Morris and Jamieson, who are being held without bail pending sentencing, each face up to 20 years in federal prison and fines of up to $1 million.
Their sentencing dates have not been set.
Michaud is scheduled to plead guilty and be sentenced on Feb. 25 to attempted simple possession of oxycodone, a federal misdemeanor. He faces up to a year in federal prison and a fine of up to $1,000.
