NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The U.S. Attorney in New Orleans says an Ohio man has been sentenced to 11 years and eight months in prison for heroin distribution.
Prosecutors said Friday that 37-year-old Jason Payne of Youngstown was part of a conspiracy involving a Houston-based drug trafficker who distributed heroin in New Orleans.
Court records show that Payne agreed to plead guilty in New Orleans last July.
