Alfonso Sanchez

A 40-year-old man pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nearly 10 years to 40 years in state prison on Friday, April 22, 2022, for running a drug smuggling ring inside the Bucks County Correctional Facility.   

Alfonso Sanchez was in the county correctional facility awaiting a retrial in a 2007 double homicide when he conspired with at least 10 others to smuggle suboxone from May 2020 to December 2020, taking advantage of inmates struggling with addiction and putting the community and the correctional facility at risk. 

On Friday, he pleaded guilty to corrupt organizations, delivery of a controlled substance, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities, conspiracy to dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities, possession of contraband, conspiracy to possession of contraband, criminal use of a communication facility and conspiracy to criminal use of a communication facility. 

Saying he acted on “greed and power,” Common Pleas Judge Brian T. McGuffin sentenced Sanchez to 119 months to 480 months in state prison, along with 10 years of state probation.
