    Federal prosecutors say a Portland, Maine, man will spend 11 years in prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine in the city.

    Thirty-four-year-old Marco Gordon pleaded guilty to the charges in July. He will also spend five years on supervised release and was ordered to forfeit more than $4,000.

    Court records say Gordon and others conspired to sell crack in Portland from December 2013 to January 2015. Police arrested Gordon in January.

    Gordon's co-conspirator Robert Joiner was previously sentenced to three years in prison. Another, Russell Gordon, has entered a guilty plea and is awaiting sentencing. It's unclear if the two Gordons are related.

    Marco Gordon's lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
