Leader of Norman Drug Ring Gets 4-year Sentence (Nov 19, 2010)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced the leader of a Norman drug ring to four years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton handed down the sentence Thursday to 25-year-old Josh Compton, saying Compton was "far more than a routine buyer and seller of drugs." The Norman Transcript reports that Compton must report to federal prison by Dec. 13.

Compton joined his parents and two brothers in pleading guilty to drug charges earlier this year. The FBI says they led a conspiracy to distribute the painkiller OxyContin and that some of the operation was run out of the Comptons' heating and air conditioning business.

Heaton says the evidence showed Josh Compton set up appointments with doctors, fronted money and took people to doctor's appointments.

Compton's attorney said his client was "too nervous" to make a statement.
