BOSTON (AP) - A former Massachusetts lawmaker has been sentenced to three years in state prison after pleading guilty to drug charges.

Stephen Doran (DOHR’-un) was also sentenced to two years of probation Monday in Suffolk Superior Court after pleading guilty to charges of trafficking in methamphetamine and money laundering.

He faced up to 20 years in prison if convicted at trial.

The 58-year-old Doran was arrested last May after receiving a package containing nearly 500 grams of methamphetamine at the Match Charter Public Middle School, where he worked as a tutor.

Doran, who has cancer, was a Democratic state representative from Lexington from 1980 until 1994. He also worked as an executive at a bank.

His lawyer tells the Boston Herald (https://bit.ly/1gKlScq ) that Doran is now substance free and “very remorseful.”
