A Lexington man was sentenced on Monday, July 23, 2018 to 25 years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute fentanyl, crack cocaine, and cocaine, as well as possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Michael D. Jackson, 37, previously admitted that, in early 2017, members of the Lexington Police Department Narcotics Unit began an investigation into his residence, located on Norway Street near Lafayette High School. During the investigation, police stopped and searched Jackson’s vehicle, discovering a 9mm firearm and large quantities of drugs. A search of his residence found additional drugs, more than $80,000 in cash, and several firearms. Jackson pled guilty to the charges in April 2018. Following his prison sentence, he will serve eight years probation.
