BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A former Connecticut man who pleaded guilty to his role in a crack cocaine distribution ring in Maine has been sentenced to three years behind bars.

Twenty-eight-year-old Torrence Benton was sentenced to federal prison Thursday in a Bangor court.

Court documents say Benton, formerly of New Haven, Connecticut, distributed crack in the Bangor area between January 2010 and August 2013. He pleaded guilty last year.

The records say the source for the crack was in the New Haven area and it was transported to the Bangor area by other people involved in the conspiracy.

Benton has already served nearly three years in state prison.
