TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Another member of a large-scale drug trafficking ring that sold heroin at the Jersey Shore is headed to prison.

Federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Richard Durham, of Brick, received a 46-month sentence Tuesday. He also will have to serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

Durham had pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin in Monmouth and Ocean counties, admitting that he possessed and distributed between 60 and 80 grams of the drug from November 2013 through March 2014.

Durham was among 20 people arrested in March 2014 and accused of roles in the ring, known as the Britt-Young DTO Judge. Fifteen of them have pleaded guilty so far.
