Posted: Sunday, January 24, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A former youth counselor in Anchorage has pleaded guilty to selling drugs, including crack cocaine.

The Anchorage Daily News reported Edward Jamal Mason, 31, pleaded guilty Friday to four counts of distributing a controlled substance. Mason was accused of selling crack to an FBI informant four times in 2008 near the McLaughlin Youth Center, where he was responsible for supervising juveniles.

Officials said they had no indication Mason sold drugs to the juveniles at the youth center. They say he left the youth center for unrelated reasons in March 2009.

Mason faces at least 10 years in federal prison.
