AMITE - A 27-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he pleaded no contest to marijuana distribution and gun charges on Monday.

In August 2013, Hammond police recorded Correy Marshall of Hammond selling six bags of marijuana to an undercover police officer and a confidential informant.

When officers went to arrest Marshall at his residence on Woodscale Road, they said they found a gun on a dresser in the home. As a previously convicted felon, Marshall faces an additional charge for possessing the firearm.

Marshall was sentenced to five years for distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and five years for attempted possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

His 10 year total sentence is to be served concurrently.
