Caribou Man Sentenced 

Anthony Caparotta was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Bangor on Tuesday to 68 months in prison and fined $17,900. A jury convicted him in June of marijuana distribution charges.

Prosecutors said Caparotta worked for Michael Pelletier, an Aroostook County man who was convicted of running a multimillion-dollar international marijuana smuggling operation from his wheelchair while collecting disability checks. Pelletier is serving a life sentence.
