A Northeast man has been ordered to serve 12 years in federal prison for selling heroin, crack and other illicit drugs from a duplex in Academy Gardens.
Junell Osborne, 29, sold drugs from June 2010 until July 2011 from the Northeast rental home, as well as at an apartment at 2500 Knights Road in Bensalem, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Members of the Bucks County Violent Crimes Task Force raided the Bensalem location on July 7, 2011, and arrested Osborne.
In addition to heroin and crack, Osborne also trafficked in marijuana and possessed two firearms, despite prior felony convictions. A court declared him a “career offender” because of two earlier drug trafficking convictions in Bucks County.
Osborne pleaded guilty to the drug and firearms charges last June 25. U.S. District Judge C. Darnell Jones imposed the prison sentence on April 1 and further ordered Osborne to serve six years of supervised release. ••
