An Arlington, Texas, man has been sentenced in Shreveport Federal Court for his role in distributing cocaine and methamphetamine in Northwest Louisiana.  

Federal Judge Donald Walter has sentenced 33-year-old Laquon Ashton to 48 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Ashton pled guilty in July of last year to conspiring with his mother and others to sell cocaine and methamphetamine in the Mansfield and Shreveport areas in early 2012.  Authorities used a confidential informant to record Ashton and the others making sales, conducting purchases, and scheduling deliveries of illegal drugs.

Ashton’s mother, Janette Ashton, pled guilty in April of last year to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.  She was sentenced in September to 60 months in federal prison and four years of supervised release.

Seneca Colbert pled guilty last July to conspiracy to distribute cocaine.  She was sentenced in December to 96 months in federal prison and four years supervised release.

Brian Davis pled guilty last November to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and two counts of possessing cocaine base with intent to distribute.  He was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release.
