1 min read

BURLINGTON — The United States Attorney’s Office announced that Lamont Hudgins, 42, of Staten Island, New York, has been indicted on charges of distributing cocaine base at a local housing authority high-rise.

Hudgins was arraigned on March 11 and is currently detained pending further proceedings.

Court documents reveal that Hudgins, who has a 2018 conviction for the distribution of heroin and marijuana, is accused of selling cocaine base and fentanyl to a confidential informant on multiple occasions in 2023 and 2024 at Decker Towers, which provides housing for elderly and disabled residents.

While an indictment merely contains allegations, Hudgins will remain presumed innocent until proven guilty.

If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.

The final sentence would be determined based on the advisory United States Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
