A Huntington man has been sentenced to 11 years in federal prison on firearms and crack cocaine distribution charges.
 
Lamont Lee Miller Jr., 23, of Huntington, previously pleaded guilty in June to five counts of distribution of crack cocaine.  That is according to U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin's office.
 
Miller admitted that on five separate occasions between June 24, 2010 and August 20, 2010, that he entered the Smokin' Aces store in Huntington and sold crack cocaine to an undercover agent working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). 
 
Miller also admitted that between June 16, 2010 and November 2, 2010, he and an associate sold at least 18 firearms, but no more than 20 firearms, to undercover ATF agents at the Smokin' Aces store.
 
 
The defendant initially pleaded guilty to the firearms charges pursuant to a plea agreement with the government.
