ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) — A Memphis, Tenn., man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison on federal drug charges.

U.S. Attorney John Marshall Alexander says Quincy Terry pleaded guilty last September to conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute.

Alexander says U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock also sentenced Terry to five years of supervised release.

Alexander says Terry was the leader of a multi-state drug trafficking organization that was responsible for distributing cocaine in Mississippi, Tennessee, Illinois, Iowa and other states.

He says Terry and other coconspirators organized and managed the delivery of hundreds of kilograms of cocaine from Texas, Illinois, Mexico and other places.

Alexander says other members of Terry’s drug trafficking organization have also been convicted.
