Fort Wayne, IN-(ENEWSPF)- Acting United States Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, Clifford D. Johnson, announces that Larry Norton, age 66, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was sentenced to life imprisonment before United States District Court Judge Theresa Springmann for conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 5 kilograms or more of cocaine and 1 kilogram or more of heroin. He was found guilty after a 6-day jury trial in May of 2017.

According to documents in this case, Norton faced a statutory mandatory minimum sentence of life imprisonment without release because he has two prior final felony drug convictions. Norton’s criminal history actually consisted of three felony drug convictions, two convictions for dealing and distributing cocaine (one federal and one state) and another conviction for possessing cocaine.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Fort Wayne Safe Streets Task Force, which includes FBI, Indiana State Police, Allen County Police Department, and the Fort Wayne Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Stacy R. Speith and Anthony W. Geller.
