DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A judge has sentenced a Davenport man to eight years in prison for conspiring to distribute heroin.

The Quad-City Times (https://bit.ly/16qvG9N ) reports U.S. District Judge John Jarvey also sentenced 54-year-old Curtis Anthony Newman Sr. to five years of supervised release once his prison sentence is completed.

Prosecutors say that Newman collaborated with others to distribute heroin between March 2010 and September 2012. They say another man, Lennon Hunter Jr., obtained heroin in California and would send it to the Davenport area, where Newman would receive it.

Hunter has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for his role. He also was ordered to five years of supervised release.
