Case Style:

United States of America v. Sergio Figueroa, a/k/a "Kash"

Case Number: 1:21-cr-00103-LEW

Judge: Lance E. Walker

Court: United States District Court for the District of Maine (Penobscott County)

Plaintiff's Attorney: United States Attorney’s Office

Defendant's Attorney: Matthew Erickson

Description: Bangor, Maine criminal defense lawyer represented defendant charged with conspiracy to possess and distribute fentanly.

In April 2021, Sergio Figueroa, aka "Kash," age 26, conspired to distribute and possess with intent to distribute fentanyl. As part of the conspiracy, he used a residence in Bangor to store and distribute drugs. On April 21, 2021, agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency executed a search warrant at the Bangor residence. Upon searching Figueroa’s bedroom, agents found 80 grams of fentanyl and $1,680 in cash along with a loaded .380 caliber pistol. Figueroa was prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition because of a prior Maine felony conviction.

Earlier, in a separate January 2020 incident, court records show that Figueroa arranged for a straw purchaser to buy two pistols for him from a federal firearm licensee in Androscoggin County. While purchasing the firearms, the straw purchaser responded “Yes” to a question on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives form that asked whether the purchaser was the actual buyer of the firearms. In truth, the straw purchaser bought the firearms at Figueroa’s instruction, using money provided by Figueroa, and gave the firearms to Figueroa minutes after the sale. It is against federal law to aid and abet the provision of false information to federal firearm licensees when purchasing firearms from them.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration; the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Lewiston Police Department.

Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 84 months on Count 1 of docket number 1:21-cr-00103-LEW-1 and 84 months each on Counts 1 and 2 of docket number 1:21-cr-00153-LEW-1, all to be served concurrently; supervised release for a term of 4 years on Count 1 of docket number 1:21-cr-00103-LEW-1 and 3 years each on Counts 1 and 2 of docket number 1:21-cr-00153-LEW-1, all to be served concurrently; $100 special assessment in 1:21-cr-00103-LEW-1 and $200 special assessment in 1:21-cr-00153-LEW-1, for a total of $300.
