HUGHESTOWN -- A former police officer who was distributing oxycodone pills was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison Thursday.
Robert Evans of Moosic was a police officer in Hughestown when he committed the crimes.
In July, Evans pleaded guilty to a drug trafficking offense. He admitted distributing the prescription painkillers numerous times between 2012 and 2013 while he was a police officer.
The feds said he used his position as a cop to facilitate and conceal the drug activity.
