Two Chicago Men Sentenced for Drug Trafficking in Quincy

(SPRINGFIELD)—Two Chicago men who admit to organizing a cocaine trafficking ring in Quincy get lengthy federal prison sentences. 24-year-old Sylvester Purham is sentenced to 20 years and 21-year-old Howard Purham is sentenced to 30 years by a federal judge in Springfield.

The Purhams entered guilty pleas to conspiracy to distribute more than 280 grams of crack cocaine in an investigation that spanned from August 2010 to November 2011. The two were arrested in January. The federal criminal complaint says the two helped orchestrate the operation that saw them transport drugs from Chicago
