The trial of an accused Lawrence, Mass.-based fentanyl kingpin ended in a guilty plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court.
Sergio Martinez, 29, will be sentenced to 45 years in prison and forfeit $2 million if a judge accepts the plea deal, U.S. Attorney Scott Murray said Wednesday.
The cross-border operation lasted from 2015 to April 2018 when police started making arrests. According to a tapped telephone conversation, Martinez at one point bragged that he moved as much as 35 kilograms a month of the deadly opioid fentanyl.
