Antoine Jones, a onetime D.C. nightclub owner whose drug conspiracy case resulted in a landmark ruling by the Supreme Court regarding the government's use of GPS tracking, pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Before the start of his first trial, Jones was offered a plea agreement that would have required him to serve 13 years in prison, Mr. Balarezo said.
"I fully expected him to go to trial a fourth time," Mr. Balarezo said. "There's a lot at stake politically for the government. I never thought they were going to let it go."
