Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The U.S. Attorney's Office says a Waterloo crack dealer will spend the next 10 years in federal prison after he admitted to selling the drug near a school.

Charles Earl Wright, 28, of Waterloo, was sentenced last week after being convicted on Feb. 22, 2010 of Possession with Intent to Distribute approximately 134.59 grams of crack cocaine.

Wright admitted he sold crack cocaine on numerous occasions back in 2006 within 1000 feet of the Dr. Walter Cunningham School for Excellence.

Along with 10 years in prison, Wright must pay a special assessment of $100 and will serve five-years of supervised release after the prison term.

There is no parole in the federal system.

Wright is in the custody of the United States Marshal's until he can be taken to a federal prison.
