MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A 23-year-old Martinsburg man received a five-year prison sentence last week in U.S. District Court in Martinsburg on a conviction of distributing crack cocaine, U.S. Attorney Sharon L. Potter's office announced Wednesday.

Mustafa El Hajj Jones, aka "O," entered a guilty plea to one count of an indictment charging him with distribution of the drug in September and is expected to self-report to a designated federal institution, according to a news release from Potter's office.

After serving the prison sentence, Jones is expected to be placed on four years of supervised release.

The case against Jones was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul T. Camilletti and investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives and the Charles Town Police Department.
