Haverhill gang member, drug supplier sentenced

17:17 | ,


U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf Wednesday sentenced Curtis Hester, 26, to 7 1/2 years in prison to be followed by four years of supervised release, and Timothy Moynihan, 36, to 12 1/2 years in prison to be followed by nine years of supervised release. Both were sentenced for conspiring to distribute more than 28 grams of cocaine base and distribution of cocaine base. Hester's sentence was due in part to Judge Wolf's finding that Hester had lied at an earlier hearing. Hester previously pleaded guilty to the charges, while Moynihan was convicted by a jury. In September 2010, Hester, Moynihan and several other individuals were arrested after a yearlong investigation by the FBI into drug trafficking and gang violence in Lawrence and Haverhill. Moynihan supplied Hester with crack cocaine, which Hester then provided to an FBI cooperating witness. "In order to improve the quality of life for those who live in neighborhoods hardest hit by violent crime, we will continue to target not only violent gang members, but also those who supply gang members with drugs," said U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz.
