Maine man gets 44 months for importing Ecstasy

By Judy Harrison, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A Keegan man who admitted conspiring in 2007 to smuggle nearly 100,000 Ecstasy pills across the border was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court to 44 months in prison.

Bernard LeFrancois, 46, also was sentenced to three years of supervised release after his incarceration.

LeFrancois waived indictment and pleaded guilty in March 2009 to conspiracy to import controlled substances and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribute controlled substances.

He has been held without bail since then. The time he has been incarcerated while awaiting sentencing will be credited to his sentence.

LeFrancois’ sentence was reduced because he led police to where the pills were stored.
