Warren County prosecutors announced Wednesday that 42-year-old Kevin Kane of Easton, Pa., has also agreed to testify against the alleged ring-leader.

He faces a five-year state prison term when he’s sentenced later this year, and will have to serve at least one year before becoming eligible for parole.

Kane pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of official misconduct and several counts of conspiracy to possess and distribute drugs. In return, prosecutors dismissed four additional counts of official misconduct and several other conspiracy counts.

Kane was among dozens of people charged in the summer of 2009 with running a prescription drug ring. He formerly was a teacher and assistant football coach at Phillipsburg High School.
