Logan, age 35, pleaded guilty to two counts before United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson.

In connection with the guilty plea, Assistant United States Attorney John J. Valkovci, Jr., advised the court that on October 22, 2007, Logan distributed less than 500 grams of cocaine and also possessed with the intent to distribute less than 500 grams of cocaine.

Judge Gibson scheduled sentencing for April 7, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. The law provides for a total sentence of 40 years in prison, a fine of $2,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
