Oxycodone Dealer Sent to State Prison for 6 to 12 Years

September 30, 2016

A Philadelphia man who sold more than $3,600 worth of Oxycodone pills to a confidential informant was sentenced today in Bucks County Common Pleas Court to serve six to 12 years in state prison.

Allen Graham, 40, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, his third conviction on such a charge. He has been incarcerated since his arrest on June 5 by Upper Southampton Township Police.

A confidential informant arranged to purchase Oxycodone from Graham that day in the parking lot of a Walgreen’s pharmacy at 2 E. Street Road in Feasterville.

Graham was arrested immediately after the transaction, in which the informant gave him $3,680 in pre-recorded cash for 238 Oxycodone pills in doses of 30 mg and 15 mg.

Since 2001, Graham has had multiple convictions for charges including drug dealing, simple assault and possession of controlled substances. He twice has served time in state prison.

“I have a major drug problem,” he told Bucks County Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr., saying he has been addicted for many years to opioids and cocaine. Graham said he sold drugs in order to finance his own drug habit.

In imposing the sentence, Bateman told Graham that he will have drug treatment opportunities available to him in state prison that he has not had during his incarceration at the county level.

“What is significant about your prior record is that it is (repeatedly) for the same kind of offense,” the judge said.

The case was investigated by Upper Southampton and Plumstead Township police, and prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Thomas Gannon.

Approved for release by Marc Furber, Deputy District Attorney.
