Sussex LSD sales result in prison sentences for N.J., Pennsylvania men
GREEN TOWNSHIP -- Two young men have been sentenced to state prison terms for selling LSD to an undercover police informant, the Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Larry Dale Martocci, 19, of Saylorsburg, Pa., was sentenced to six years in prison and Michael Elias, 19, of Monroe Township, was sentenced to four years in prison for their parts in the sale of more than 100 milligrams, or more than 100 doses, of the hallucinogenic drug to a person cooperating with the prosecutor’s Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Task Force.
The sale occurred on Aug. 5 in Green Township in Sussex County.
Martocci pleaded guilty Nov. 9 to first-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance. Elias pleaded guilty the same day to being an accomplice in the sale, a second-degree offense.
The two men were sentenced on Jan. 30 by Superior Court Judge N. Peter Conforti.
