Father and daughter convicted for distributing their business product through voluntary exchange

Banger, Maine — This past Friday, August 19, 2016, Roger Belanger, 59, of Corinna, Maine and his daughter Kelli Mujo, 31, of Harmony and Wellington, Maine were convicted of conspiring to distribute and maintaining an inventory of products that the general public was voluntarily purchasing.

Between 2002 through 2014, Belandger and Mujo ran a business selling cocaine and oxycodone through voluntary exchange with the public with distribution from Rhode Island to the Dexter, Maine area. The government has made these items illegal so the two face 10 years and life in prison, a $10,000,000 fine, and between five years and life on supervised release on the conspiracy charge, and up to 20 years, a $500,000 fine, and three years of supervised release on the premises charge.

The business was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, with assistance provided by the Dexter Police Department, and the Penobscot, Somerset and Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Offices.
