ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine in New Mexico.

Prosecutors say 38-year-old Sam Elyicio Jr. received a 125-month sentence Monday followed by four years of supervised release.

Eylicio previously pleaded guilty to a drug trafficking conspiracy count in June.

He was one of five men indicted in April 2013 on federal narcotics and firearms charges.

They were accused of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine in Bernalillo and Santa Fe counties between May 2012 and April 2013.

Eylicio became the third of the five defendants to be sentenced. One man is awaiting trial and the other pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in November.
