New York City man sentenced to more than 8 years for drug conspiracy

BANGOR, Maine — A 46-year-old New York City man was sentenced Monday to more than eight years in prison for distribution of oxycodone and cocaine and for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute the drugs.

Kenneth Robinson, known as “Kill,” also was ordered to undergo three years of supervised release during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Bangor, U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II said in a news release.

Robinson pleaded guilty to the charges in March of 2013. His conviction stems from his involvement in a large drug trafficking ring allegedly operated by Maurice “Mo” McCray in central Maine.

Court records show that between May 2009 and May 2012, Robinson supplied oxycodone to McCray for distribution by a network of conspirators. The conspiracy was dismantled after a three-month investigation by state and federal drug enforcement agencies that revealed the details of McCray’s drug distribution operation and its membership, police reported.

Sixteen people were indicted in 2012 in connection with the alleged drug ring. At least two other co-conspirators have been sentenced.

McCray has pleaded guilty to distribution of a mixture or substance containing oxycodone, and aiding and abetting the same. He is expected to be sentenced later this year and faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $2 million due to a prior felony drug conviction.
