NE drug dealer gets 12 years

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. ••
