A Hagerstown man was sentenced Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court to 10 years in prison for distribution of crack cocaine.
Luis G. Caldero, 31, of 1040 Brinker Drive, Apt. 302, pleaded guilty before Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr., who sentenced him to 20 years in prison with 10 of those years suspended. Long also ordered that Caldero be placed on probation for three years after his release from prison.
Additional charges of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed as part of the plea agreement, court records show.
A Washington County Narcotics Task Force informant was used May 10 to purchase crack cocaine from a man, according to the statement of probable cause in the case. The purchase was for $500, the statement said.
