20 Year Sentence in Drug Trafficking Case

KSAL StaffOctober 6, 2015

A 29-year-old Topeka man accused of supplying crack cocaine to drug traffickers in Junction City and Manhattan, Kansas, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

According to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom, Johnny Lee Ivory III was sentenced Monday. He had been found guilty of one count of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, one count of possession with intent to distribute and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Prosecutors said that in late 2012 and early 2013, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Junction City Police Department investigated a large trafficking ring. Authorities say Ivory supplied drugs to two men who sold the drugs to distributors who would then resell them on the street.
