The U.S. Attorney's Office has announced that a West Bath man, Mickey Gilley, 34, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to distributing heroin and fentanyl.

According to the court records, on September 20, 2016, Gilley obtained heroin mixed with fentanyl from a Portland supplier. Later that day, Gilley distributed some of the mixture to a person in West Bath, who consumed it, which resulted in their death.

Gilley faces up to 20 years in prison, a $1,000,000 fine and up to life on supervised release.

This case results from an investigation conducted by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the Sagadahoc and Lincoln County Sheriff's Offices, the Maine State Police and the Maine Attorney General's Office.
