FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Dorrion Jefferson, age 35, of Fort Wayne was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Holly Brady after pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute meth.

Jefferson was sentenced to 17 years in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release.

According to documents in the case, a confidential informant and an undercover agent made several controlled buys of heroin and cocaine from Jefferson.

Jefferson also agreed to deliver four ounces of methamphetamine to the undercover agent.

He was stopped by law enforcement prior to the transaction with over 100 grams of meth inside the vehicle.
