KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Two more people convicted of taking part in a drug trafficking ring in Kansas City, Kan., are going to federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says Willie Ford has been sentenced 35 years and Marcus Quinn to 30 years. Both are 30 years old and lived in Kansas City, Kan.
The sentencings Monday bring to at least 13 the number of people sentenced so far as the result of a federal investigation of cocaine and crack sales in a Kansas City, Kan., neighborhood. Prosecutors have said the operation was conducted out of several houses owned by Quinn’s brother, Antonio Quinn, who was sentenced last June to more than 20 years in prison.
The charges against Willie Ford and Marcus Quinn included distributing crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of a middle school.
