    Orlando man gets 5-year prison sentence on 'party drug' charges

    A judge sentenced an Orlando man to five years in prison on Monday for conspiring to distribute a party drug.

    Justin Lynch, 27, negotiated to sell 14,000 capsules of the party drug N-Benzylpiperazine for $17,500 to a confidential informant and an undercover agent between December 2008 and January 2009, according to the Office of the U.S. Attorney. Lynch said he imported the drug in power form and then pressed the powder into capsules.

    N-Benzylpiperazine, often known as BZP, is a recreational synthetic drug that users say is similar to amphetamines.

    He also tried to negotiate with the informant to obtain oxycodone used forged prescriptions. He was arrested Jan. 13, 2009.

    U.S. District Judge Patricia C. Fawsett sentenced Lynch to five years and 10 months in federal prison.

    Paul Mixon, 22, of Winter Garden, received a secntence of 4 years and 9 months for his part in the plan.

    The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Orlando Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation investigated Lynch's case.
