Two Carlisle residents have been sentenced for their involvement in a cocaine distribution operation, federal prosecutors announced today.

Gary Stackfield, 59, was sentenced to 84 months in prison, four years of supervised release, and a $1,000 fine on August 1.

Charles Green, 55, was sentenced to two years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $300 fine on August 6.

Stackfield and Green are among 20 people who were charged in June 2011 with conspiracy to distribute cocaine, unlawful distribution of at least 500 grams of cocaine, and with using the telephone and cell phones to commit those crimes.

U.S. Attorney Peter Smith said Stackfield distributed over eight kilograms of cocaine that was supplied to him by a co-defendant, Kevin Pearson, between May 2010 through June 2011.

Pearson allegedly supplied Stackfield with cocaine which would then be distributed to and by the other named defendants, Smith said.

The individuals charged include:

- Justin Thompson: Pleaded guilty, awaiting sentencing;

- Aunye Stackfield: Sentenced to 15 months imprisonment, one year supervised release, $300 fine;

- Demarao Gumby: Pleaded guilty, awaiting sentencing;

- John Mowery: Pleaded guilty, awaiting sentencing;

- Korey Wooten: Pleaded guilty, awaiting sentencing;

- Heather Middleton: Sentenced to 9 months imprisonment, one year supervised release;

- Starlene Middleton: Pleaded guilty, awaiting sentencing;

- Michael Konetsco: Sentenced to two years probation; and

- Kevin Pearson: Sentenced to 87 months imprisonment, four years supervised release.

The following individuals originally charged as part of the federal indictment, have pleaded guilty in the Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas to a charge of simple possession of
cocaine: Walter James Fickes, Roy Singer, Robert Wesley Green, Bernadette Green, Arnold Ashwell, John Zaengle, Joseph Mowery, and Daniel Hocker.

All were sentenced to a probation with the exception of Ashwell, who was sentenced to six months' imprisonment.
