Jeffrey "Jazzy" Jones of Camden will also have to serve 12 years of supervised release once he's freed from prison. And during that time, the 36-year-old Jones will not be allowed to live in or enter Camden, Gloucester, Burlington counties or Philadelphia without prior permission from his probation officer.

Jones had pleaded guilty to a complaint charging him with conspiracy to distribute 280 grams or more of crack cocaine. He was sentenced on Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Jones was a leader for a trafficking organization known as "The Firm," which distributed about $4 million worth of cocaine from several locations in Camden from 1990 to 2007.
