According to information presented to the Court by Assistant United States Attorney Frank Russo, Quinn admitted to selling crack cocaine to another individual in Anchorage on December 10, 2009. The sale took place in Quinn’s 2002 GMC Yukon, which he forfeited to the government as part of his plea agreement. In imposing sentence, Judge Beistline noted that Quinn, despite being only 27, had a lengthy and serious criminal history, and posed a danger to the community.
