Wayne County Senior Judge Raymond Hamill sentenced John Henneforth, Jr., 39 of Greentown, Pennsylvania to between 21 and 42 months incarceration in a state correctional institution for one count of Criminal Use of a Communication Facility, a third-degree felony.

The defendant plead guilty to the charge on March 1, 2018 after being arrested in October of 2017.

According to a release from District Attorney Pat Robinson, the Wayne County Drug Task Force conducted the investigation which led to Henneforth's arrest.

“I took a lot for granted out there,” said Henneforth during sentencing. “When I get home, I just wanna support my family.”

Judge Hamill's sentence was ruled in the aggravated range of the guidelines because he was arrested for this offense while on parole.

The range of months assigned for this crime will be served consecutively to the defendant's prior convictions.

According to a release from District Attorney Pat Robinson, Henneforth has four prior drug convictions, for which his maximum release date is set for August 28, 2022.

Robinson stated in the release, “Mr. Henneforth has been a drug dealer, on and off, in Wayne County for the past six years. The best place for him is in a State Correctional Institution. I will oppose any future paroles or early releases for Mr. Henneforth.”
