FORT MYERS, Fla. - The U.S. Attorney's Office announced the arrest of a Fort Myers man for distribution of cocaine. 29-year-old Bursin Augustin faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $1 million if convicted.
Augustin was charged in a criminal complaint which states that Augustin sold about 29 grams of coke to a confidential informant working with the Lee County Sheriff's Office last week for $1,200.
The complaint also states that Augustin was previously arrested as a member of the Liberty City Seven, in 2006, for conspiracy and providing material support to terrorism related to a plot to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago.
Augustin received a six year stint in federal prison for that crime, followed by ten years of supervised release.
