ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage man has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for manufacturing or distributing crack cocaine.

Twenty-six-year-old Bjorn Esserre Elliott was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Court Judge Tim Burgess.

Prosecutors say Elliott sold crack cocaine to a government informant three times and the amount added up to more than 20 grams.

Elliot's uncle, Derek Lamont Elliott, was a co-defendant and was sentenced on Feb. 1 to five years in prison.

Bjorn Elliott is serving an additional 22 months on a probation violation for a robbery conviction in state court.
