Kentucky man sentenced to 13 years in prison

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A Louisville man has been sentenced to 13 years in federal prison for possessing crack cocaine in northern Kentucky with the intent to distribute it.

U.S. District Judge Amul Thapar on Friday also placed 58-year-old Edward L. Adams on supervised release for six years after he completes his prison term.

Adams pleaded guilty in June to possessing almost 20 grams of crack cocaine at a hotel in Boone County with the intent to distribute it.

Under federal law, he must serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence. He is classified as a career offender under federal law because of two prior felony drug trafficking convictions.
