June 19, 2013 — ASHLAND -- Five people were sentenced to prison terms last week in a federal drug-trafficking case that involved selling cocaine and pills in Carter County, according to court documents.

Ruth Locklear, 10 years in prison and eight years supervised release for conspiracy to distribute over 500 grams of cocaine.

Luis Perez Diaz, five years and six months in prison and four years supervised release for conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine.

Jose Leon Hernandez, four years and nine months in prison and four years supervised release for conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine. The court recommended he serve his sentence in a facility close to Ashland.
