PORTLAND — Prosecutors say a 30-year-old Georgia man has been sentenced to life in prison for his role in a drug trafficking ring that distributed cocaine, crack cocaine and the party drug Ecstasy in Maine.

Judge George Singal sentenced Leonard Jones on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland. A jury convicted Jones in April.

According to court documents, Jones transported the drugs from Georgia to the Lewiston area for sale and distribution between 2006 and 2008.

Prosecutors said Jones faced a mandatory life sentence because of three prior convictions on felony drug charges.
