A Jacksonville man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Forty-six-year-old Bert C. Sharrer, Sr. pleaded guilty to two third-degree felonies of aggravated trafficking in drugs and one first-degree felony engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity.

The charges resulted from a joint investigation into a drug ring running from Detroit through Columbus.

Sharrer could be considered for judicial release after five years in prison.

The investigation also led to charges against seven other people.
