New Jersey Man Admits to Selling Percocets to Undercover Investigator
A Sicklerville man has pleaded guilty to selling prescription narcotics to an undercover investigator, Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman announced on Friday.

James Williamson a.k.a. “Tank,” 49, pleaded guilty to second-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance.

Williamson admitted to selling oxycodone to an undercover investigator between Oct. 17, 2012 and Jan. 3, 2013. He admitted to selling more than an ounce of Percocet pills to an undercover officer during three transactions in Camden.

He was arrested on Feb. 28 of last year and indicted on Aug. 29.

Under the plea agreement, the state will recommend that Williamson be sentenced to seven years in state prison with 30 months of parole ineligibility.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 14.

The arrest was made as part of a larger investigation into doctors and pharmacies suspected of drug diversion through Medicaid beneficiaries, Acting Insurance Fraud Prosecutor Ronald Chillemi said.

Deputy Attorney General Christopher Ruzich, Sgt. Fred Weidman and Detectives John Collins, Anthony Correll and Kevin Gannon of the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit coordinated the investigation.
