AUGUSTA — A Boston man will spend five years in prison for trafficking in heroin and cocaine base, drug offenses that occurred in June in Waterville.

Domingos Cabral Jr., 26, was charged with aggravated trafficking with six grams or more of heroin and unlawful trafficking in cocaine base following a month-long investigation by police in Waterville.

Cabral pleaded guilty to those offenses on Nov. 4 in the Capital Judicial Center, and a sentencing hearing was held Monday in the same courthouse. Two other charges were dismissed in exchange for his plea.

Cabral also was subject to criminal forfeiture of $1,560 seized June 11 and $374.84 seized July 13, also in Waterville.

He was fined $400 for each of the drug offenses and ordered to pay $240 restitution.

In a separate hearing on Monday, Randy E. Haskell, 55, of Augusta, was sentenced to four years in jail with all but four months suspended and two years’ probation. He had pleaded guilty Oct. 13 to unlawful trafficking in cocaine base. That and three other drug related charges were filed following a search of his South Belfast Avenue home on Dec. 22, 2014.

In exchange for his guilty plea, which occurred in October, the other charges were dismissed.

He was fined $400 and ordered to pay $110 restitution for drug testing costs.

Haskell requested and received a stay in the jail sentence. Justice Robert Mullen ordered him to report to the Kennebec County jail on Dec. 28.

Two other people were sentenced in separate hearings Monday.

Lauriston P. McKenney, 31, of Waterville, burglary of a motor vehicle, theft by unauthorized taking and two counts of criminal mischief, all March 3 in Waterville; three years in jail, all but four months suspended, two years’ probation and up to $500 restitution.

Patty Ann Church, 58, of Waterville, burglary and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer May 20 in Waterville; two years in jail with all but 30 days suspended, two years’ probation. She was ordered to pay restitution of up to $500.
