Jeffrey Pare, 29, of Woonsocket pleaded guilty to trafficking Oxycodone on Tuesday in federal court in Providence. 

Pare pleaded guilty as charged in a federal indictment returned on August 19, 2015 to three counts of distribution of Oxycodone. 

Pare remains on home confinement and is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge John McConnell, Jr. on August 18, 2016. 

The Admission 

In court, Pare admitted that on three occasions, between July 17 and August 14, 2014, he sold Oxycodone tablets to an undercover Providence Police Department detective assigned to the Rhode Island DEA Drug Task Force. 

According to information presented to the court, on July 17 2014, Pare sold the undercover law enforcement officer 69 Oxycodone tablets in exchange for $2,100 in cash, on July 25, 2014, Pare sold 200 tablets to the undercover officer for $5,800 in cash and on August 14, 2014, Pare sold the undercover officer 491 Oxycodone tablets in exchange for $22,400 in cash. All transactions occurred in Woonsocket. 

Pare was charged by way of a federal criminal complaint and arrested by DEA Drug Task Force agents and Woonsocket Police on July 15, 2015. At his initial appearance in U.S. District Court on July 22, 2015, Pare was ordered released on $50,000 unsecured bond to home confinement with electronic monitoring. 

The case is being prosecuted by assistant U.S. Attorney Gerard Sullivan.
