Man gets 4 years for cocaine distribution in US

A federal judge has sentenced a Dominican immigrant to nearly four years in prison for his involvement in cocaine distribution by a cell in suburban Atlanta.
Oscar Reynoso, 31, was sentenced Tuesday to 46 months in prison, with five years supervised release to follow. He had pleaded guilty on March 10 to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute at least 5 kilograms of cocaine.
Authorities say Reynoso was ambushed and held for about a week in July after being lured from Rhode Island to settle a drug debt. Authorities found him bound and gagged in the basement of a house.
Three of his captors pleaded guilty in March to federal hostage taking, drug and firearms charges in the case. They are set to be sentenced in July.
