by Your Alaska Link News Team

A 37-year-old Fairbanks man has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison for possessing cocaine for distribution.

Reports say Benjamin Dewayne Smith was found with more than 13 ounces of cocaine in 2012.

He pleaded guilty to possession in April and was sentenced Wednesday to nine years and two months in prison.

Prosecutors say Smith had been convicted three previous times of drug felonies.

He's the former co-owner of Heavy Chevy Entertainment, also known as HCE.
