Farrell man gets 61/2-year prison sentence for cocaine trafficking

Staff report

PITTSBURGH

A federal judge has sentenced a 48-year-old Farrell, Pa., man to 6 1/2 years in prison on a cocaine trafficking charge.

U.S. District Court Judge Arthur J. Schwab imposed the sentence on Raymond Anthony Napolitan, who will be on five years of supervised release after he leaves prison.

The U.S. Attorney said Napolitan possessed with intent to distribute more than a pound of cocaine.

Napolitan was convicted in September by a six-man, six-woman jury that deliberated for about 3 1/2 hours.

The available sentencing range was five years to life in prison and up to a $1,250,000 fine, but the judge waived a fine because he said Napolitan was unable to pay. Judge Schwab on Thursday made the federal sentence consecutive to a state court sentence that was imposed on Napolitan.

The case was investigated by the FBI; the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office; the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office and drug task force; and Southwest Mercer County Regional Police.

Totally crazy case. This fellow was allegedly holding a woman for days in his residence against her will.

Her phone calls to PD ended up with cops coming by when he was away and she consented to the search of the structure, which netted 2 pounds of cocaine and other things like weapons.

Sounds moderately odd to say the least.

But, same fellow in the past had chased another lady around town with his car and ended up in the pokey for being a woman abuser.
