A Leavenworth man has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for two drug cases.
Eric Dangerfield, 38, was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.
He had been found guilty March 12 of possession of cocaine with intent to sell and driving with a suspended license. Those crimes occurred Sept. 2, 2011, in Leavenworth.
Dangerfield reportedly was stopped on a moped in the area of Columbia Avenue and Michigan Street. During the traffic stop, an officer searched Dangerfield and located a bag that contained four individually wrapped baggies each containing an off-white rock-like substance that was determined to be cocaine. Dangerfield also had more than $2,800 in his possession, according to information from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson.
Dangerfield had reached a plea agreement in another case, pleading no contest to possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. These crimes occurred Jan. 25, 2012, in Leavenworth.
An officer who had stopped Dangerfield in that case found plastic bags containing drugs in the defendant's truck. The officer also found drug paraphernalia in the truck, according to Thompson.
District Judge Gunnar Sundby sentenced Dangerfield Friday to 30 months in prison for one case and 20 months for the other case. He ordered the two sentences to run consecutive.
