ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man has pleaded guilty in a crack cocaine trafficking case and is facing a prison sentence of more than 10 years.

Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Sam Eylicio Jr. entered his plea Monday to a charge of conspiring to distribute crack cocaine in Bernalillo and Santa Fe counties between May 2012 and April 2013.

They say he admitted purchasing ounce quantities of crack cocaine and cocaine from a co-conspirator and then selling the drugs to others for profit.

Eylicio remains in federal custody pending his sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.

Under the terms of his plea agreement, prosecutors say Eylicio will be sentenced to 125 months in federal prison followed by four years of supervised release.
