SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Tyler Hull, age 39, of Fulton, New York, was sentenced yesterday to serve 33 months in federal prison for conspiring to unlawfully distribute and possess with the intent to distribute eutylone, a Schedule I controlled substance. 

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Matthew Scarpino, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

As part of his previously entered guilty plea, Hull admitted that from November of 2020, through December 22, 2020, he participated in a conspiracy to distribute eutylone to others throughout Oswego County. Eutylone is a synthetic cathinone and has pharmacological effects on the central nervous system similar to other schedule I or II substances such as methylone, pentylone, cocaine, methamphetamine, and MDMA.

United States District Judge Glenn T. Suddaby also imposed a 3-year term of supervised release, which will start after Hull is released from prison.

The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the U.S. Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI), and the Oswego County Drug Task Force, comprised of Special Agents of HSI, members of the City of Oswego Police Department, the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office, Investigators from the Oswego County District Attorney’s Office, the SUNY Oswego Police Department, and Agents of the U.S. Border Patrol.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Adrian LaRochelle.
