Pittsburgh cocaine seller will get 10 years in jail

A man from Pittsburgh has been sentenced to ten years in prison for cocaine trafficking, federal prosecutors said.

Raymond Erfort, 45, was convicted of possession of nearly 500 grams of cocaine with the intent of distributing the drugs in western Pennsylvania, US Attorney General Stephen R. Kaufman said.

Erfort will serve six years of supervised release after serving his sentence. He was convicted of drug trafficking by three public prosecutors between 2001 and 2009 and served three years in prison terms.

US Assistant Attorney Craig W. Haller is pursuing the case.
