PORTLAND, Maine — A Lewiston man will spend the next 14 years behind bars after he was sentenced on Thursday, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Romelly Dastinot, 35, was also sentenced to three years of supervised release on a charge of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, heroin and oxycodone.

Dastinot pleaded guilty in April 2015.

Court documents indicate Dastinot led a drug trafficking organization that transported crack cocaine, heroin and oxycodone from Massachusetts into Androscoggin County for distribution between 2012 and 2014.

Twelve of Dastinot’s co-defendants have been sentenced while three more await sentencing.

Auburn and Lewiston police, State Police, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office handled the case.
