The trial of a Stoughton District Court officer accused of selling prescription drugs to an undercover state trooper was scheduled to begin today in Norfolk Superior Court.
Keely Johnson, 32, of Stoughton is charged with trafficking in oxycodone more than 14 grams and distribution of oxycodone. The charges stem from an investigation conducted in 2006.
Jury selection was completed Monday and opening statements were expected to be heard today. Judge Kenneth Fishman is presiding.
Johnson was arrested on Aug. 3, 2006, after allegedly selling 20 Percocet pills to the trooper. The transaction allegedly followed an earlier sale of 50 Percocet pills to the same trooper.
A Canton man, Joseph Iantosca, 52, was arrested for allegedly supplying the pills to Johnson.
Johnson is also charged with violation of drug laws within 1,000 feet of a school and conspiracy to violate the federal Controlled Substances Act.
An investigation began when authorities received information that Johnson was selling prescription drugs at the Stoughton courthouse.

Former Stoughton Court Officer Sentenced

Woman Gets Two Years For Drug Distribution

DEDHAM, Mass. -- A former Stoughton District Court security officer was sentenced Thursday to two years in the House Of Correction for distributing drugs around the courthouse, the attorney general's office reported.

Keely Johnson, 32, was convicted on two counts of possession with intent to distribute a Class C drug and drug violation near a school or park.

Johnson will serve two years for the drug violation near a school or park and three months for one count of possession with intent to distribute. The sentences will run consecutively, with Johnson serving three years of probation for the other count of distribution.
The three-day trial ended Wednesday as Norfolk Superior Court Judge Kenneth Fishman convicted Johnson of the crimes.

Johnson was arrested in July 2006 after she twice sold Percocet pills to an undercover state trooper. The attorney general's office received a tip that Johnson was selling prescription narcotics on Stoughton Courthouse grounds in July 2006.

An investigation found Johnson's co-defendant, Joseph Iantosca, 52, sold Johnson the pills the undercover officer purchased. Iantosca changed his plea to guilty June 25 and will begin serving a two-year sentence in September.
