SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A Utica man will spend the next 130 months in prison, following his conviction in a drug trafficking case.
Jeffrey Rivera was sentenced Thursday in federal court.
Authorities said he participated in a drug trafficking conspiracy involving in excess of 5 kilos of cocaine.
Officials say the charges stemmed from an investigation, beginning in 2016, into the drug trafficking activities of Rivera and his co-conspirators in and around Utica.
He's also required to forfeit more than $13,000 in drug money.
He was sentenced to 5 years of post-supervised release.
