Conn. woman sentenced to nearly 2 years for trading oxycodone for crack cocaine

By Judy Harrison, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A Connecticut woman was sentenced Tuesday to 23 months in prison for being part of a conspiracy to distribute oxycodone in Kennebec and Cumberland counties between April and August 2011.

Susan Tomczyk, 57, of Stamford, Conn., traded the oxycodone pills prescribed for her to Barry Diaz, 39, of Stamford, Conn., for crack cocaine, according to court documents.

Tomczyk pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute oxycodone. In a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, a charge of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone was dismissed.

She faced up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.

Tomczyk was indicted in November 2011 by a federal grand jury with five others: Kenneth McKenney, 24, of China; Ricky Sirois, 47, of Randolph; Peter Poland, 40, of Whitefield; Elizabeth Coleman, 21, of China; and Eva Elliott, 59, of Stamford, Conn.

The charges against Elliott have been dismissed, according to information posted on the court’s electronic case filing system.

McKenney and Coleman have pleaded guilty to drug charges and are awaiting sentencing. Poland was sentenced in August to three years and four months in federal prison for his role in the conspiracy.

Diaz was indicted in separate drug conspiracy cases with Jesse Morrison, 24, of Augusta; Amber Davis, 25, of Readfield; Darlene Duran, 21, of South El Monte, Calif.; and Mark Razo, 22, of Folsom, Calif.

All but Diaz and Razo have pleaded guilty. Morrison was sentenced to a year and Duran was sentenced to seven years and three months in federal prison for their roles in the conspiracies.

Diaz, Sirois and Razo are scheduled to go on trial early next year.
