Longview Drug Sentence For Prescription Selling

A Longview man receives a prison sentence on drug charges for selling his own prescription. 50-year-old Horace Jones was sentenced yesterday to 18 years behind bars. Investigators say on two occasions, Jones sold hydrocodone to Gregg County undercover agents.

Jones claimed he was selling his prescription to afford more. Jones' sentence was based on numerous, previous drug arrests and convictions.
