HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Detroit man has been sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute heroin in West Virginia.

Jakaiser Wesley Jackson was sentenced in federal court in Huntington on Monday. He previously pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin.

Jackson was the fifth defendant to be sentenced in connection with the heroin conspiracy.

This case was brought as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of heroin and prescription drugs.
