Drug Trafficker is Sentenced to 20 Years in Federal Prison

Andrew Hunter of New Hampshire, was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for trafficking in cocaine and heroin throughout New Hampshire and Maine. Hunter was the distributor for a large drug ring and the main supplier for said ring. When he is released, he will be on supervised release for a period of 3 additional years. Supervised release is the federal equivalent of state probation.

When facing federal charges, the stakes are significantly higher than they are in state court. For example, an aggravated drug trafficking crime in state court may land you a mandatory minimum sentence of 4 years in state prison. Perhaps a maximum of 8 years, depending on the facts of the case and the defendant’s criminal history. In federal court, you’re likely looking at a 10 year mandatory minimum prison sentence and if you’re classified as a armed career criminal offender, you maybe looking at 30 years to life. That’s a BIG difference.

When you’re facing charges that could go either federal or state, it’s in your best interests for your attorney to try to negotiate a state jail sentence and to keep the case out of federal court.

If you’ve been charged with a federal offense in Maine, call The Law Office of William T. Bly, at (207) 571-8146.

Great group of people. Managed to get me a favorable outcome from a very bad situation. I would highly recommend this firm if you have legal troubles. Top notch performance!!

So thankful I chose this team to represent me. They’re the best, hands down. Nathan Hitchcock proved my innocence not once but TWICE, including a trial by jury. I have a family in law enforcement who told me “Bill Bly and his team are the best. If I would recommend anyone, it would be them.”
