PARIS — A Hiram man pleaded guilty to selling oxycodone pills

Gary J. Robedee, 49, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated trafficking of scheduled drugs, Class B. He was sentenced to five years, with all but three months suspended, plus two years of probation and $800 in fines.

According to affidavits, Robedee sold oxycodone to Maine Drug Enforcement Agency agents and confidential informants on July 30 and Aug. 9 of 2012.

The affidavit, by Special Agent Norman Nichols of the Sanford Police Department and the MDEA, details the two purchases. In each instance, Robedee is described selling three 30 mg. oxycodone tablets.

Because the controlled purchases took place at Robedee’s home, which is close to the high school and middle school, the charges were elevated to Class A, which carries a sentence of up to 30 years. However, the charges were lowered to Class B on Friday in exchange for his plea.
