A 30-year-old Nebraska man has been sentenced for selling crack cocaine and marijuana in northwest Iowa.

Federal prosecutors say Jason Martinez had pleaded guilty in June to distributing crack and marijuana and to illegally possessing a gun. Martinez was sentenced last week to 130 months in prison and must serve 10 years of supervised release when he leaves custody.

Prosecutors say Martinez has previous convictions in 2008 and 2002 for selling drugs in Douglas County, Neb., and also in 2002 for selling drugs in New York.

During his plea hearing at a U.S. District Court in Sioux City, Iowa, Martinez admitted obtaining crack in Omaha that he would sell in Sioux City. His drug operation ran from 2010 through June 2011.
