Posted: Wednesday, April 16, 2008

ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage drug dealer has received nine years in federal prison for distributing crack cocaine.

Esthepen Delossantos Pebenito, 33, was sentenced Monday in federal court.

Prosecutors said Pebenito distributed five grams or more of crack cocaine on two separate occasions.

The government said Pebenito also was involved in a separate conspiracy to distribute over 50 grams of the illegal drug.

The case was pursued by one of two prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney's Office. The positions are funded by the Municipality of Anchorage to go after gang-related and violent crime cases.
