GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 27-year-old Florida man who coordinated trips to move large amounts of cocaine from Florida to Texas by way of South Mississippi will serve a total of 14 years in prison.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1MUuFIJ) U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden on Tuesday sentenced Herman McGee Jr., of Jacksonville, on two federal charges.
On a drug conspiracy charge, Ozerden sentenced him to the 14-year prison term followed by five years of supervised release and an $8,000 fine. That sentence will run concurrently to another 14-year sentence and $8,000 fine on a charge of conspiracy to possess a firearm in a drug-trafficking scheme.
Another Jacksonville man, 27-year-old Michael Lamar Ricks, will serve a little more than nine years in prison on a drug conspiracy charge.
