ALBANY — Ray A. Perkins, 30, of Schenectady was sentenced Tuesday to 60 months in prison for conspiring to distribute crack cocaine, according to court documents.

The announcement was made by acting U.S. Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Vadim D. Thomas, special agent in charge of the Albany field office of the FBI.

Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy also sentenced Perkins to 4 years of supervised release, to begin after his release from prison. 

As part of his guilty plea in August 2016, Perkins admitted that, between December 2015 and March 2016, he and a co-conspirator sold more than 100 grams of crack cocaine in the city of Schenectady. 

The case was investigated by the FBI and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Barnett.
