Man sentenced for dealing drugs in the Queen City

Posted: Updated:

A Burlington drug dealer will spend more than a decade behind bars.

Stephen Bedell, 51, was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for repeatedly selling crack and heroin in 2012. Prosecutors also say Bedell coerced 10 women into performing sex acts to settle drug debts and saved the compromising photos of them on his cellphone. A judge called his conduct appalling.

Authorities say Bedell hid $154,000 in a storage unit. Police also seized cars, cellphones and a large quantity of drugs from him.

Bedell has two prior drug dealing convictions.
