    A former Narragansett, Rhode Island, resident was sentenced Friday to 186 months in federal prison for trafficking cocaine and crack cocaine, and for being a felon in possession of firearms.

    Damon Graham's wife, Ashley Sekator-Graham, 31, was sentenced in August to 48 months in federal prison for her role in the trafficking of cocaine and crack cocaine in South Kingstown and Narragansett.

    At sentencing Damon Graham, 34, was also ordered to serve eight years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term. He pleaded guilty in April to one count each of possession with the intent to distribute 28 grams or more of crack cocaine, among other charges.

    An investigation in July 2013 into the distribution of cocaine and crack cocaine in South Kingstown and Narragansett, including undercover drug purchases and electronic surveillance by law enforcement, resulted in the seizure of nearly 109 grams of crack cocaine, 200 grams of cocaine powder, two firearms, $93,701 in cash and the arrest of Damon Graham and his wife Ashley Sekator-Graham, according to court documents.

    According to court documents, the investigation and the execution of court authorized search warrants resulted in the seizure of nearly 109 grams of crack cocaine, a 9mm pistol, ammunition and $3,751 in cash from the couple's Narragansett residence; 201 grams of cocaine, a .38 caliber revolver, hollow-point ammunition and a safe containing $89,950 in cash from a self-storage unit rented by the couple in Narragansett.
