BANGOR — A former resident of New Haven, Connecticut, is pleading guilty in federal court to participating in an interstate conspiracy to possess crack cocaine with the intention of selling it.

Twenty-eight-year-old Torrence Benton faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine. Court records say he distributed crack in the Bangor area between January 2010 and August 2013. The records say the source for the crack was in the New Haven area and it was transported to the Bangor area by other people involved in the conspiracy.

Benton is currently serving a state prison sentence in the Maine State Prison.
