HUNTINGTON, WV -

A Huntington drug supplier will be spending the next several years in prison. 

Michael Lashawn Johnson, 34, of Huntington, pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to distribute 280 or more grams of crack cocaine. 

Johnson now faces a minimum 10 year sentence in federal prison but could be sentenced to life.

According to a press release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin, Johnson was part of a conspiracy dating back to 2006.

Investigators say he used his connections in Columbus, Ohio, to supply crack dealers in and around Huntington.  Johnson will be sentenced in September in Huntington.
