NEWPORT — Jeremy Allin, 54, of Lancaster, New Hampshire, was sentenced to 14 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for his role in a drug distribution conspiracy in Orleans County.

United States District Judge Christina Reiss handed down the sentence after Allin pleaded guilty to conspiring with others to distribute fentanyl and cocaine base.

According to court records, Allin became involved with codefendant Juan Carlos “JC” Ortiz in late 2021, initially purchasing drugs for personal use before assisting Ortiz in drug transactions and transportation.

Following a February 2022 search warrant execution in Westfield, Allin provided housing for Ortiz in Lunenburg, continuing their association until Ortiz’s arrest in August 2022.

Ortiz was previously sentenced to 95 months’ imprisonment for his role in the conspiracy.
