TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a member of a large-scale drug trafficking ring has pleaded guilty to a conspiring to distribute heroin.

Jonathan Thomas, a 39-year-old Asbury Park resident also known as “Life,” entered the plea Tuesday. He now faces up to 20 years in prison and $1 million fine when he’s sentenced June 30.

Thomas was among nearly two dozen people accused of roles in the ring, known as the “Britt-Young DTO.”

Prosecutors say that between September 2013 and March 2014, Thomas conspired with others to distribute heroin in Monmouth and Ocean counties. He admitted to supplying 100 to 400 grams of heroin to the drug trafficking organization while he was in prison.

A message left for Thomas’ attorney on Tuesday afternoon was not immediately returned.
