 Camilla --  A south Georgia prosecutor says a major Mitchell County drug dealer is going to prison.  

Douglas Lorenzo Haynes was charged with trafficking cocaine and possesion of ecstasy and marijuana with intent to distribute. Near the end of his trial, the D. A. decided to let him enter a guilty plea to a lesser charge of possesion of cocaine and ecstasy with intent to distribute. 

 "The main thing is we got one of the major drug dealers off the streets of Mitchell County," said District Attorney Joe Mulholland. "Of course that is the goal on the war and drugs is to get the 'big fish' as they say. And this was actually a case of getting one of the big fish off of the streets of Mitchell County."

The judge sentenced Haynes to 18 years in prison, but he'll only have to serve eight.
