An Ohio man was sentenced in federal court for attempting to deal crack in Huntington.
Shawn "Pops" D. Harris, 44, of Springfield was sentenced Monday in Huntington to eight years and one month. Harris pleaded guilty in November 20012 to possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute, according to U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin's Office.
In March 2010, the Huntington Police Department arrested Harris during a traffic stop. Police said they found about 10 grams of crack cocaine and an unknown amount of marijuana.
Prosecutors believe Harris is responsible for distributing more than 1 kilogram of crack cocaine within Huntington.
