BUFFALO -- U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. announced today Barrett Johnson, 34, of Jamestown, NY, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute MDA, also known as “Molly,” a Scheduled I controlled substance, before Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $1,000,000.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Adler, who is handling the case, stated that the defendant sold MDA on multiple occasions, at location which included Johnson’s barbershop. The defendant would purchase “Molly” from co-defendant Richard Clarke and, in turn, sell the “Molly” to others, including co-defendant Joshua Castro.

Co-defendants Joshua Castro and Richard Clarke have been convicted and are awaiting sentencing.

Today’s plea is the result of an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly, and the Border Enforcement Security Taskforce which includes the Ontario Provincial Police, Niagara Regional Police, Peel Regional Police and Toronto Police Services.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 8, 2018, at 2:30 p.m., before Chief Judge Geraci.
