DALLAS — Nicholas Kyle Driggers, 31, of Forney, Texas, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to a 151 months in federal prison following his guilty plea in June 2017 to one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

 

            Driggers has been in custody since the time of his arrest in March 2017.

 

            According to documents filed in the case, on March 2, 2017, Addison Police Department
