Drug Ringleader Sentenced

Mar 28, 2013

A Springfield man charged with running a marijuana-trafficking ring in Columbus was sentenced this week to 10 years in federal prison.

34-year-old Antwane Rhodes was arrested in June after a federal grand jury indicted him on multiple charges of running the ring and laundering the proceeds through a fake company. Prosecutors say Rhodes brought marijuana to Columbus from Mexico. Four other Springfield men already have been sentenced in the case.
