Portland man sentenced to 11 years for crack conspiracy


PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say a Portland man will spend 11 years in prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine in the city.
    
Thirty-four-year-old Marco Gordon pleaded guilty to the charges in July. He will also spend five years on supervised release and was ordered to forfeit more than $4,000.
    
Court records say Gordon and others conspired to sell crack in Portland from December 2013 to January 2015. Police arrested Gordon in January.
    
Gordon's co-conspirator Robert Joiner was previously sentenced to three years in prison. Another, Russell Gordon, has entered a guilty plea and is awaiting sentencing. It's unclear if the two Gordons are related.
