LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Mississippi man has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to charges resulting from an investigation into drug dealing in eastern Arkansas that included five law enforcement officers.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that 32-year-old Tremaine Simon was sentenced to 133 months in prison Friday after pleading guilty in April to conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Simon - knows as "Kocaine Krazy" - was among dozens of people charged after an investigation into drug distribution and police corruption related to what investigators say was a cocaine and marijuana distribution ring centered in Helena-West Helena and Marianna.
The investigation was known as "Operation Delta Blues."
