court plead guilty

He used “Dark Web” to Import and Distribute 30 Kilograms of Ecstasy

Alexander Yaksic, age 28, of Everett, Massachusetts, was sentenced today to serve 41 months in federal prison for participating in a conspiracy to distribute MDMA, also known by its street name ecstasy.

The announcement was made by Acting United States Attorney Antoinette T. Bacon and Kevin Kelly, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

United States District Judge Mae A. D’Agostino also sentenced Yaksic to serve a 3-year term of supervised release following his release from prison.

Yaksic pled guilty on October 22, 2019.  At that time, he admitted that he used the Internet’s “dark web” to import at least 30 kilograms of MDMA from overseas suppliers and then distributed that MDMA to customers throughout the United States. 

“Dark web” generally refers to web sites not accessible through ordinary web browsers and search engines, and which individuals can access through an anonymizing browser, without having to provide their computer identifying information. 

This case was investigated by HSI, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Wayne A. Myers and Shira Hoffman.
