The man who drove the getaway car for a home invasion that left one of his co-conspirators dead is going to prison.

Who Was Sentenced?

John Raymond, 36, of Stratton received his sentence in a Bangor courtroom on Monday. He will spend 4 years in prison for his role in a violent home invasion in Rangeley. He will serve three years of supervised release once he his sentence is completed.

What Was the Crime?

The charges stem from an incident in July 2016 Raymond helped to plan and carry out that involved stealing drugs from a Rangeley residence. On July 28th of that year, Raymond bought drugs from the owner of the home, in order to confirm that controlled substances were present in the location.

During the home invasion, the target of the robbery shot and killed one of Raymond's co-conspirators. When Raymond heard the commotion coming from inside the residence, he took off. He was stopped by police officers sometime later as he was driving another co-conspirator to a bus station.
