An Ohio man who pleaded guilty to charges of dealing cocaine in 2011 will serve four more years in prison after violating the conditions of his probation.
Jymarcus Lott, 27, was arrested in Silverton, Ohio, after a traffic stop uncovered several baggies of marijuana and a .380 semi-automatic handgun. Prosecutors filed a probation violation after the arrest.
In his original case, Lott was sentenced to serve seven years in prison with four of those years to be served on probation for dealing cocaine, a Class B felony. Lott sold drugs to an undercover informant three times over the span of a few months.
At a probation revocation hearing Wednesday, Special Judge Roger Duvall found sufficient evidence to support the violation and sentenced Lott to serve the remaining four years of his sentence.
