Man convicted of cocaine distribution

A Jefferson City man pleads guilty to federal cocaine distribution charges.

Mario Alberto De La Cruz entered the plea Tuesday.

Prosecutors say he sold $1,900 worth of cocaine to an undercover informant in late 2015, and conspired to sell a total of more than five kilograms before he was arrested.

He’s facing a mandatory minimum of ten years without parole.
