PASCAGOULA -- An Alabama man and a Moss Point woman have been sentenced in unrelated drug cases in Jackson County, District Attorney Tony Lawrence said.
Angelo Stevens, 39, of Monroeville, pleaded guilty to one count each of possession and transfer of cocaine.
Circuit Judge Dale Harkey sentenced him to three years in prison, with credit for time served on the possession charge. In that case, he's accused of possession an illegal drug in March.
The judge sentenced him to the maximum eight years on the transfer charge. In that case, he's accused of selling illegal drugs in August. The sentences will run consecutively, meaning Stevens will serve up to 11 years in prison.
The judge ordered him to pay a total fine of $3,000, plus $600 to cover the costs of a state Crime Lab feel to confirm the identity of the drugs. The judge also ordered him to perform 25 hours of community service after he's released from prison.
Leslie Richardson, 41, received the maximum sentence of eight years, with six years to serve and the remainder on post-release supervision. She had pleaded guilty to two counts of transfer of cocaine, having sold cocaine to an undercover agents in June 2013.
Agents with the South Mississippi Metro Enforcement Teams investigated both cases. Assistant District Attorney Cherie Wade prosecuted the cases.
