Man Arrested With 17,000 Ecstasy Tablets [NY]

Man Arrested With 17,000 Ecstasy Tablets
May 25, 2005 - newswatch50.com

A man from the town of Bombay is being held in the Franklin County Jail on charges that he sold more than 1,500 Ecstasy tablets to a police informant.

48-year-old John V. Oakes was indicted on two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of second-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. He was arraigned in Franklin County Court and jailed in lieu of $500,000 cash bail.

Oakes has had a prior federal conviction for sale of cocaine and an attempted-robbery conviction in St. Lawrence County.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency agents raided Oakes's home Monday and allegedly found 17,000 Ecstasy tablets, two pounds of marijuana and four firearms.

The charges in the indictment stem from an incident on May 12th when he allegedly had more than 1,000 Ecstasy tablets in his possession and sold them to an undercover informant for $3,000, and another incident on May 15th when he possessed 500 tablets and allegedly sold them to an undercover informant for $1,500.

Ecstasy plea
July 11, 2005 - pressrepublican.com

A Bombay man will serve at least 10 years in state prison after admitting Monday that he sold 1,500 Ecstasy tablets to an undercover agent in May.

John V. Oakes, 48, pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a felony, before Franklin County Court Judge Robert G. Main Jr.

Each charge carries a 10-year sentence, but the plea agreement with the District Attorney's Office allows for Oakes to serve the two prison terms at the same time.

He was indicted in May on the two criminal-sale counts and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for selling an undercover U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent 1,000 tablets of methylenedioxyeth-amphetamine tablets for $3,000 on May 12 and another 500 tablets on May 15 for $1,500.

Authorities said each tablet can sell for between $6 and $10 each on the street.

Using a search warrant, investigators went to his property in Bombay on May 27 and found an additional 17,000 tablets of ecstacy, two pounds of marijuana and four guns.

But, under the plea agreement, any charges stemming from the additional tablets or the marijuana will not be pursued.

However, Oakes had a prior federal-level cocaine-sale conviction and attempted-robbery conviction in St. Lawrence County Court, which meant that, as a felon, he was not to possess any firearms.

He is expected to plead guilty to a federal weapons charge before the end of August.

Through a letter from the U.S. Attorney's Office, Main was asked to consider having the state-prison sentence he imposed run concurrent to the federal sentence.

Oakes had been in County Jail on $500,000 cash bail or $1 million insurance bond, but Main ordered him held without bail until sentencing at 9 a.m. Aug. 29.

Officials said Oakes had been a suspect in a number of incidents where he allegedly shot at people who came to pick up a pre-arranged amount of marijuana at his compound.
