A 23-year-old man who had picked up a number of criminal cases but spent little time in jail is now facing 57 months in federal prison.
Judge Sandy Mattice sentenced Demarcus Heard on Tuesday afternoon. The sentencing range was 57-71 months, and the prosecution did not oppose the low end of the range.
Attorney Joe DeGaetano said in the past that Heard had served "30 days here and there" but nothing like years in prison.
Another young man with an extensive criminal record, Michael Hicks, got 24 months.
Prosecutor Chris Poole said the 26-year-old Hicks has picked up some 18 charges, including his juvenile record.
