BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A New York man has been sentenced to more than five years in federal prison for his role in a drug ring that distributed cocaine and prescription painkillers in Maine.

James “Reggie” Proudfoot was also sentenced to six years of probation and ordered to forfeit $6,000 in bail in U.S. District Court in Bangor.

The 33-year-old Proudfoot pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribute oxycodone and cocaine.

The Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1cQhyX7 ) reports he was one of 21 people involved.

The prosecution said Proudfoot was the connection between New York drug sources and the distributor in Maine.

Proudfoot was ordered to forfeit the bail money for failing to appear at two court hearings. His lawyer said he was under intense pressure.
