By The Associated Press

Federal prosecutors say a Fort Washington man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for distributing crack and cocaine.

Forty-five-year-old Peter Purvis Jr. was sentenced on Monday in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.

According to his guilty plea, Purvis was part of a Suitland-based drug trafficking organization.

He admitted to being responsible for distributing between 11 and 33 pounds of cocaine.
