A 37-year-old Lincoln man has been given four to eight years in prison for possessing cocaine with intent to sell.
John Sampson was sentenced in Lancaster County District Court on Tuesday.
Authorities say that on Nov. 5, Sampson was an intoxicated passenger in a traffic stop and was taken to Cornhusker Place Detox.
Authorities say nearly 22 grams of cocaine was found there in one of his pockets.
In 2002 Sampson was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison, later reduced to four years, for distributing another illegal drug, ecstasy.
