A 90-year-old Indiana man who admitted serving as a illicit drug courier for a Mexican drug cartel was sentenced yesterday to three years in federal prison.
Leo Sharp, a decorated World War II combat veteran who turned 90 yesterday, also was sentenced to three years supervised release by Judge Nancy Edmunds in U.S. District Court in Detroit.
Sharp was pulled over by police in October 2011 for erratic driving on an interstate in Michigan with what turned out to be 104 bricks of illicit drug in his truck.
Prosecutors said Sharp hauled 2,750 pounds of drug into Michigan from the southwestern U.S. on a half-dozen trips from February 2010 until his arrest, earning more than $1 million.
