Madison man sentenced to life in prison for drugs

Posted: Updated:

MADISON COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A Madison County man will spend the rest of his life in jail for repeatedly breaking the law and selling drugs.

30-year-old Jermaine Mitchell was convicted Wednesday of selling crack cocaine from his home.

He was sentenced to 120 years in prison.

Mitchell's sentence was enhanced because his home is less than 15-hundred feet from Ark of Safety Ministry church.

Prosecutors said Mitchell was a habitual offender, with prior cocaine and marijuana convictions.
