Ex-St. Louis officer sentenced for giving gun to drug dealer
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former St. Louis police officer has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for providing a shotgun to drug dealers.
Don McGhee was sentenced Tuesday. The 28-year-old had pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to possess a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime.
According to prosecutors, McGhee knew people who distributed crack cocaine and marijuana, and that he gave a dealer a Mossberg 12-guage shotgun in March 2014, knowing the person would use it in relation to drug trafficking.
