Crack Cocaine Sentence

A Dubuque man will be spending a considerable amount of time in lockup after he was sentenced on drug related charges this week. 33 year old Cory Dukes was handed a 15 year prison sentence after he pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids to one felony count of distributing a controlled substance within one thousand feet of a protected area. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped a second charge of distributing a controlled substance within one thousand feet of a protected area. Federal authorities say Dukes sold crack cocaine last December near Loras College, Avon Park and Rocco Buda Jr. Park. Once he gets out of prison, Dukes will serve six years of supervised release. He has prior convictions of drug related offenses in Dubuque and Linn Counties and Cook County in Illinois.
