AUGUSTA – 39-year-old Franklin Arbour junior received that sentence this week at the Capitol Judicial Center.
He was convicted by a jury in August of seven drug charges, including aggravated trafficking, unlawful possession and cultivating marijuana. Arbour was arrested last year after Maine Drug Enforcement Agents and Augusta Police raided his apartment on River Street.
Police seized 12-hundred packets of heroin, nearly 24 grams of crack cocaine, 12 grams of bath salts and more than one hundred marijuana plants.
Arbour served eight years in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine in the Augusta area. He also was convicted at the time for soliciting people to sell him guns to trade for drugs in Massachusetts.
He was released from federal prison in 2009.
