Albany--  An Albany man is sentenced to more than 30 years in prison for selling drugs.

Twenty-nine--year-old Laburell Jones was sentenced Thursday in Federal Court to 366 months in prison followed by five years of supervised release. He was charged in July 2001 with selling 13 grams of crack cocaine.

Jones entered a guilty plea in May to possession with intent to distribute.

He was arrested during a joint investigation by the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
