COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) — U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning sentence a 28-year-old Cincinnati man for his part in a Northern Kentucky drug ring Friday.

Anthony Lamar received 13 years for conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine.  Lamar is just one of more than 20 people who have been convicted in what the US Attorney's Office is calling a large cocaine conspiracy which is trafficking drugs in Northern Kentucky.

Lamar was convicted in Federal Court in May of 2010 after a four-day trial. The evidence at trial established that he conspired with several other individuals to distribute approximately 5.5 kilograms of cocaine in Kenton County from the summer of 2007 to May of 2008.

He received over $100,000 for the cocaine he distributed.

Lamar has prior felony convictions for drug trafficking and illegally carrying a loaded handgun. He was indicted for the cocaine conspiracy charge in November of 2009.

 

Under federal law, Lamar must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence, and, upon release, will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for eight years.
