A man in Sharon will be spending three years of his life behind bars for drug trafficking, according to U.S. State Attorney Eric G. Olshan.

Jammar Shelton, 44, plead guilty to conspiring to distribute fentanyl and cocaine between 2020 and 2021, and to possessing cocaine with intent to distribute within  1,000 feet of a school and public housing in 2021.

As a result, he was sentenced to 36 months in prison and six years of supervised release following his sentence, according to court records.

This stems from a year-long investigation that led to rounding up 25 people in Mercer in Lawrence Counties wanted on drug charges.

 The suspects were named in two separate but related, Indictments for trafficking multiple drugs, including heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine, and cocaine.
