Wareham man pleads guilty to cocaine trafficking

May 19, 2017

A Wareham man pleaded guilty in federal court in Boston in connection with trafficking cocaine on May 18.

Aaron Mott-Frye, 27, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute. U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patti B. Saris scheduled sentencing for Sept. 28, 2017.

Mott-Frye was a cocaine supplier to Christopher Wilkins and Christian Chapman, members of the Nauti-Block gang that operated on Cape Cod. On June 14-15, 2016, Mott-Frye distributed cocaine to a cooperating witness.

Chapman and Wilkins previously pleaded guilty to heroin trafficking charges, amongst other crimes, and will be sentenced on July 12, 2017, and Aug. 16, 2017, respectively. Denzel Chisholm, who is alleged to have been a leader of the Nauti-Block gang, and co-defendant Molly London, have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them and are scheduled for trial on June 5, 2017.

The charges provide for a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, three years to life of supervised release and a fine of up to $1 million. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The remaining defendants are presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

In 20 years he will be out to deal death again. These are the ones that should never feel the sun again.

I have a very good tolerance for those who make a mistake, we all have made mistakes in our lives of one kind or another. However when it comes to dealing this "power of sure death" I consider this a violent crime. Over my years as one of your former Selectpersons, the worst part of the job was when I received too many calls (1 would be too many) from the 2 Chiefs I served with as well as our Town Administrator letting me know we lost another person to these drugs. And folks this addiction is not just kids in alleys, but people from all walks of life and status. This epidemic must be stopped. Over the last 2 weeks, I forget the day, I listened to our current Attorneys General Jeff Sessions, put back in place the rule of law in this country that had been taken away by the Obama Administration to punish these dealers and kingpins to the full extent of the law. I see that the article mentions the minimum sentencing guidelines, but I also note that the crime was committed during a period when the past 2 Attorneys Generals allowed the President to interfere with their handling of US law and lighten the sentencing. Maybe my friend Mr. Pete can help with this, but do these people get sentenced under our existing AG, or since the crime happened under the old AG do their policies guide the sentencing? I continue to pray for these addicted victims, and yes folks again you have all read and heard the stories, of how death can happen from a simple broken or strained ankle, and these sellers just take advantage of them knowing their death is almost certain. I would be in favor of charging some of these folks with attempted murder, and murder in the event of death, because of their actions if we could prove the drug that killed someone came from them. Sorry but yes I am very passionate about this issue, having personally known victims, especially in our very own Town of Wareham. This is not just in Wareham either, as I travel on business and get to the room at night every town is faced with this sad tragedy.
