SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A former Santa Fe merchant has been sentenced to three years and five months in prison for his part in a drug operation that used his Plaza-area store.

Ashraf Nassar was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Albuquerque for conspiracies to distribute oxycodone and marijuana. The 32-year-old and four co-defendants were charged in September 2013 in a 16-count indictment. Two other defendants were added later.

Nassar pleaded guilty on June 2, admitting that from December 2012 to September 2013 he received oxycodone from multiple sources and provided it to redistributors and users.

He has also pleaded guilty to drug charges in state District Court. He is scheduled to be sentenced for those charges Dec. 7.

All of Nassar’s co-defendants have also entered guilty pleas.
