Felon gets 18 years on federal drug, gun charges
Question of the Day
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A 37-year-old convicted felon has been sentenced to 18 years in prison on federal drug and weapons charges.
The U.S. attorney says Aaron Young of Providence was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Providence on Thursday. He had pleaded guilty in October to one count each of possession with intent to distribute cocaine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Prosecutors say Young was arrested in January of last year while Providence police and federal drug task force agents were executing search warrants at his home. They seized a bag he had discarded that contained five packets of cocaine. They also seized a loaded 9-millimeter handgun.
Authorities say Young has been held as a parole violator after previous state convictions on felony assault, robbery and drug charges.
