Drug sentences for Mississippi woman and Alabama man

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An Alabama man and a Mississippi woman have been sentenced in unrelated drug cases in Jackson County.
    
District Attorney Tony Lawrence tells The Sun Herald  39-year-old Angelo Stevens, of Monroeville, Alabama, 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 and eight-years on the transfer charge. The sentences will run consecutively, meaning Stevens will serve up to 11 years in prison.
    
Forty-one-year-old Leslie Richardson, of Moss Point, 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.
