A Haughton man has been sentenced to 120 months in prison and five years of supervised release for a firearms charge and for selling cocaine and methamphetamine with his girlfriend and mother.

Deshun McNeely, 33, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Donald E. Walter to 60 months in prison for one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and methamphetamine and 60 months in prison for one count of possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea in Oct. 2013 McNeely, his girlfriend Marenda Smith and his mother Brenda White, conspired to sell cocaine and methamphetamine in northeast Louisiana from 2012 to 2013.

In May 2013, agents executed a search warrant at McNeely and Smith's home. Powder cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, four firearms and $9,000 were seized. Agents also seized $36,000 found in a storage unit McNeely and Smith rented.

Smith was sentenced to 30 months in prison and White 24 months in prison on May 22. They were also each ordered to serve three years of supervised release.
