A Waterloo man will spend almost 20 years in federal prison for selling crack cocaine to a police informant on two separate occasions.
After pleading guilty to distributing crack cocaine after a prior felony drug conviction on October 25, 35-year-old Antonyo Reese was sentenced on Tuesday to 19 years and seven months in prison.
According to court documents, Reese admitted to selling the drugs to the informant in October and November 2011. He also admitted that he had prior convictions for possession of crack cocaine with intent to deliver and assault on a police officer causing injury.
In addition to the prison term, Reese was also sentenced to six years of supervised release after he's released. There is no parole in the federal system.
Reese will be held in the custody of the United States Marshal's until he can be transported to a federal prison.
