Boston - A Wareham man was sentenced today in federal court in Boston in connection with trafficking cocaine.

Aaron Mott-Frye, 27, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patti B. Saris to 18 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In May 2017, Mott-Frye pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute.

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.

Christian Chapman and Christopher Wilkins pleaded guilty to heroin trafficking charges, among other crimes, and were sentenced to eight years and nine years in prison, respectively. Denzel Chisholm, the alleged leader of the Nauti-Block gang, was convicted by a federal jury and sentenced in September 2017 to 28.5 years in prison.     

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Mickey D. Leadingham, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, Boston Field Division; Michael J. Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Boston Field Division; Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe; and Barnstable Police Chief Paul MacDonald, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Eric S. Rosen and Miranda Hooker of Lelling’s Criminal Division prosecuted the case.
