NAPOLEONVILLE — Two men arrested in a multi-agency drug sweep in Assumption Parish earlier this year have pleaded guilty to drug distribution counts, prosecutors said Thursday.
Kentrell Sanders, 29, of Napoleonville, pleaded guilty to one of count of distribution of crack cocaine Wednesday before Judge Ralph Tureau of the 23rd Judicial District, prosecutors said in a news release.
Tureau sentenced Sanders to 10 years in state prison, with two of those years without probation, parole or suspension of sentence, Assistant District Attorney Tommy Daigle said in the statement.
The 23rd Judicial District encompasses Assumption, Ascension and St. James parishes.
Also, John Brouillette, 29, of Pierre Part, pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of distribution of marijuana before Tureau, prosecutors said.
Brouillette is expected to be sentenced to 15 years in prison on Jan. 25, prosecutors said.
Brouillette and Sanders were arrested in connection with Assumption Parish sheriff’s deputies’ “Operation Get a Real Job” roundup, which followed a series of undercover drug stings, prosecutors said.
