Bootheel Man Gets 5 Years on Federal Drug Charges

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Steele man was sentenced today on federal charges of drug trafficking, according to U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway.

Jonathon Dority, 21, was sentenced to 60 months on four felony counts of distribution of cocaine base, and to one felony count of distribution of five grams or more of cocaine base.  Dority appeared before U.S. District Judge Steven Limbaugh.

On June 8, 2006, an undercover officer purchased a quantity of crack cocaine (base) from Dority in Steele on two different occasions.  Twice on June 19, 2006, an undercover officer purchased crack from Dority and on June 20, 2006, an undercover agent purchased 9.5 grams of crack from Dority.

Hanaway praised the work of the SEMO and Bootheel Drug Task Forces as well as the FBI in the case.
