NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A judge sentenced a New Orleans man to 20 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to his role in several home invasions.
Prosecutors said Clarence Singleton, 30, targeted the homes of drug dealers to try to get money or illegal drugs. They added that Singleton would then take the stolen drugs and try to sell them.
On top of that, prosecutors say he also conspired to use, possess and discharge firearms to further his drug trafficking activity.
Singleton previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit Hobbs Act Robbery and use of firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking crimes.
Federal Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced Singleton to 20 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release and a $200 special assessment.
