COVINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) — A federal judge sentenced a Cincinnati man to 10 years in federal prison for distributing over 500 grams of heroin in Covington, Ky., says United States Attorney Kerry Harvey.

Willie A Robinson admitted to selling over 250 grams of heroin in July of 2014, police say, and intended to sell an additional 300 grams before he was arrested on September 2, 2014. Indicted on December 11 of that year, he pled guilty late February.

Robinson possessed a lengthy criminal history, according to authorities, previously convicted of marijuana trafficking in 2002 and federal fraud offences in 2007.

Under federal law, Robinson must serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence, and will be on supervised release for an additional 10 years following his prison term.
