Twenty-four-year-old Azariah Wilson received a 30-month sentence Wednesday. He also will have to serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

Wilson had pleaded guilty in January to a complaint charging him with knowingly and intentionally importing 500 grams or more of cocaine.

Prosecutors say Wilson ingested 56 pellets of cocaine — nearly 883 grams overall — before boarding a flight from Costa Rica to Newark in June. He had planned to fly from Newark to Ottawa, but never made that flight.
