A Midland man has been sentenced in connection with a conspiracy to distribute drugs by using a juvenile.

33-year-old Michael Dion Acrey has been sentenced to more than 11 years behind bars for the crime.

Back in February, Acrey was convicted by a federal grand jury.

During the trial, evidence showed that Acrey asked a juvenile to purchase crack cocaine a location in Odessa, which was under surveillance by police.

OPD recovered almost 17 grams of crack cocaine from Acrey's vehicle. Police also found 150 grams of crack at the house while executing a search warrant.
