Batavia man who admitted to meth distribution given two years probation
Another member of an alleged meth distribution ring in Genesee County that was broken up in 2009 has been sentenced in federal court, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced today.
Andrew Chapman, 42, of Batavia, will serve two years on probation for his part in the distribution of methamphetamine.
In June, Chapman admitted in federal court to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute, methamphetamine.
Chapman received the meth he sold from Donald G. Vanelli II, 49, of Le Roy, who is serving more than 17 years for his role in the sale and distribution of meth locally.
Three other people were arrested in the raids in 2009.
All of the cases have been resolved, except that of Donna L. Boon (aka Donna McAuley), who lives at 3658 Batavia-Oakfield Townline Road. Her original charges were dropped but she remains under federal indictment for other alleged offenses.
Know wonder people still keep dealing drugs, 2 years probation is nothing. 10 to 20 is more like it.
Henry, the main guys got time. My guess? Sang like a bird and set these guys up. JMO
