WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A Waterloo man, who had previously been convicted of more than 30 crimes as an adult and who trafficked crack cocaine, was sentenced Wednesday to more than 17 years in federal prison. 

Samuel Landfair, 39, of Waterloo, received the prison term after a December 15, 2017 guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, four counts of distribution of crack cocaine, and possession with intent to distribute crack near a protected location.

Landfair admitted to selling crack cocaine on four separate occasions during November 2016 and possessing crack for the purpose of distributing it within 1,000 feet of George Washington Carver Academy. Landfair's criminal history includes more than 30 adult convictions, including a conviction for possession of a simulated controlled substance with intent to distribute and three separate convictions for possessing a controlled substance with intent to distribute. 

Landfair must sever an 8-year-term of supervised release after the prison term.
