A South Georgia man is headed to prison for dealing drugs.

Forty-six year old Michael Williams of Valdosta was sentenced to 35 years in prison for various drug charges, including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. Prosecutors say he distributed nearly a kilogram of cocaine per week in the Valdosta area between 1998 and 2003.

He's also charged with money laundering and structuring because he put more than $400,000 made from his dealings in a number of bank accounts, then converted that into cashiers checks and bought things in a third party name.

In addition to his prison sentence, Williams will also have to pay a $1,300 assessment fee.
