Cocaine Dealer Learns Fate for Drugs, Gun in Car Behind NJ School

Federal prosecutors say a Trenton man is going to prison after pleading guilty to drug trafficking.

NJ.com reports Donald Jackson was sentenced to nearly 6 years behind bars Thursday.

Jackson was arrested on Jan. 30, 2014 after police found him in his car behind an elementary school. Federal attorneys say two young children were also in the car along with a loaded handgun and 16 grams of cocaine. The handgun had a defaced serial number.

Investigators that same day found more than 140 grams of cocaine in his apartment.

The 32-year-old Trenton man pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute more than 28 grams of cocaine.

He was also sentenced to receive five years of supervision upon his release and was fined $1,000.
