SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Springfield man has pleaded guilty to selling crack cocaine from his home last year, and is opposing the prosecutions’ efforts to forfeit money seized in the case.

The Republican (https://bit.ly/2a7RH0T ) reports that 40-year-old Cornell Robbins was sentenced to three years behind bars Tuesday after pleading guilty to distribution of cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Robbins opposed a motion for forfeiture of $7,100 seized in the case. His lawyer says the money was from a transaction involving a car.

Prosecutors say police had received a tip that Robbins was selling crack from his home. Police stopped Robbins in his car last April and found cocaine and $4,750. Prosecutors say a search of his home found more drugs and money.
