A Dresden man was sentenced Friday to 10 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiring to distribute heroin and cocaine base in central Maine.

Daniel Pallis, 29, had pleaded guilty to the charge on June 13, 2017, and was taken into custody at that time.

The sentencing hearing on Friday was held at U.S. District Court in Bangor.

The conspiracy took place between July 2015 and March 2017, according to the prosecution’s version of events. It says Pallis obtained the drugs from co-conspirators and sold it from a residence in central Maine.

“The defendant engaged in the distribution and selling of the controlled substances at the direction of co-conspirators and kept records of his sales,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Joel Casey.

It also says a confidential informant ordered drugs through another co-conspirator and was sent to Pallis to complete the transaction. No other individuals were named in the complaint against Pallis.

Pallis, who was also fined $1,000, is represented by attorney Donald Brown.

According to a plea agreement in the case, Pallis waived his right to appeal any sentence less than 36 months.

The charge carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
