PARIS — A Rumford man was sentenced Friday in Oxford County Superior Court to 12 years in prison with all but seven years suspended on two felony aggravated drug trafficking charges.

Randy Aron, 41, pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of aggravated trafficking of cocaine.

He received a sentence of seven years in prison on each count, though the state said they will run concurrently.

In return for a guilty plea, the state agreed to drop two additional aggravated trafficking charges and charges of illegal possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of a scheduled drug and violating conditions of release.

Aron was also sentenced to three years of probation, with conditions including being subject to random search and testing for drugs and firearms, not possessing or using any drugs or alcohol and having no contact with Rumford resident Jessica Pare, who was arrested with Aron on drug charges in March.

Aron was one of seven people arrested by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency on March 1, on charges of dealing cocaine at his home at 12 Angie Lane in Mexico. He was released on bail on the condition that he not commit crimes or have contact with the other individuals arrested.

On April 6, Aron was seen by police driving with Pare, who he was prohibited from contacting.

When Rumford Officer Brad Gallant pulled their car over, Aron fled the scene and Pare was arrested.

Aron was later found by police, arrested and taken to Oxford County Jail.
