<![CDATA[ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) -- The 10th and final defendant in a north Mississippi drug trafficking operation has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison. Kenneth Scales of Corinth was sentenced last week by U.S. District Court Judge Sharion Aycock in Aberdeen. Scales pleaded guilty earlier to conspiracy to distribute drugs, according to court records. Three years of probation will follow the sentence. The Daily Corinthian reports (http://bit.ly/1qWCZbM ) Scales will report to prison June 2. Scales was among the group indicted in November 2012 on charges of distributing marijuana and cocaine in the region between October 2011 and May 2012. Prosecutors say the group arranged the purchase and shipment of drugs into the region, stored them at stash houses and transported them to local buyers.
