A Dixmont man has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for conspiring to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute oxycodone.

Adam Hamilton, 34, was also sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge John A. Woodcock Jr. to three years of supervised release.

According to court records, Hamilton and others bought the oxycodone in Waterbury, Connecticut, and sold it in central Maine. Authorities said the conspiracy existed from June 2013 to about April 2015.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maine said the case was investigated and prosecuted as part of a Department of Justice effort to combat opioid abuse.
