The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a Carbon County man was sentenced Monday in federal court in Scranton by Senior United States District Judge Edwin M. Kosik, to serve 30 months in prison on the charge of distributing cocaine.

Joseph Revell, 21, of Nesquehoning, previously pleaded guilty to distributing cocaine in the Carbon County area between January 2011 and December 2012.

Revell was indicted by a federal grand jury on Oct. 30, 2012, after an investigation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Nesquehoning and Lansford Police Departments in Carbon County.

Previously, Alexander “Butch” Sommers, 48, of Summit Hill, Carbon County, was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison for participating in the same cocaine trafficking ring.
