Hendricks Guilty Plea

Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe announced that Issac M. Hendricks (DOB 01/04/1983) of East Falmouth pled guilty in Barnstable Superior Court to Trafficking 28 - 100 grams of Oxycodone, Possession of Marijuana and Conspiracy to Violate the Controlled Substances Act. Superior Court Judge Gary Nickerson sentenced Hendricks to 7 years to 7 years and a day state prison at MCI Cedar Junction.

The criminal charges resulted from a drug investigation by the Cape Cod Drug Task Force and the Falmouth Police Department. On August 31, 2008 the defendant paid several thousand dollars in cash for 240 80mg. pills of Oxycodone, to someone who had legally obtained the medication from a local pharmacy. Police surveilled the car that the defendant was in from the pharmacy back to his residence. Upon arrest, the defendant threw the prescription bottle of drugs under a parked car, where the police retrieved them. The case was scheduled for trial Tuesday September 6, 2011 when the defendant fled the courthouse. He was apprehended that afternoon and was brought back to Court yesterday when he changed his plea to Guilty as charged.
