Monroe man sentenced for role in heroin and cocaine trafficking conspiracy

SCRANTON - An East Stroudsburg man was sentenced to 63 months in prison for his role in a Monroe County-based heroin and cocaine trafficking conspiracy.

Anton Woodson, 34, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than 100 grams of heroin and cocaine during 2014. Woodson admitted to being responsible for distributing between 100 grams and 400 grams of heroin, which translates to between approximately 4000 and 16,000 retail bags of heroin.

Woodson was one of seven people charged by a federal grand jury in a superseding indictment in March 2015. The others charged - Eddie Pace, Shawnette Isaac, Daryl Trent, Myron Owens, William Young, and Catherine Abbey - all have entered guilty pleas in the case and have either been sentenced to prison or are awaiting sentence.
