STAFF REPORTS



ROCHESTER --  Michael Ingham, 29, of Rochester, pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute a controlled substance before U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who is handling the case, stated that Ingham was prescribed large quantities of oxycodone by his heath care provider. Beginning in October 2016 and continuing until his arrest in February 2017, Ingham conspired to sell his oxycodone pills to Daniel Volonino, Jr. and Ronald Lockwood, who, in turn, sold pills to others in the Rochester area.

Ronald Lockwood has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing. Charges are pending against Daniel Volonino, Jr. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.   

Today’s plea is the result of an investigation by Special Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge James J. Hunt, New York Field Division, and investigators with the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the New York State Attorney General, under the direction of Eric Schneiderman.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 16.
