Aug. 15 edition: MADAWASKA - Paul Corbin of Madawaska has been sentenced to eight years in prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute drugs and related money laundering, according to court documents. On Tuesday, Aug. 14, U.S. Chief Judge John Woodcock also sentenced Corbin to four years of supervised release after his time in prison.

After the sentencing hearing Corbin was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service, according to the documents.

On June 25, government prosecutors had filed a sentencing recommendation of between 87 and 108 months, which Corbin’s attorney, Portland-based Daniel Lilly, and had not objected to.

In January of this year Corbin had entered into a plea agreement of one count of conspiracy to posses and intent to distribute and distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana, and one count of conspiracy to engage in money laundering.

Corbin was arrested in late Jan. 2011 after law enforcement agents allegedly found over 200 pounds of marijuana in a trailer owned Corbin, as well as methamphetamine pills and $53,000 in cash in his nearby residence.
