SEATTLE (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a Renton man to 10 years in prison for his role in a violent drug distribution ring, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.

Benjamin Fuentes was indicted in July 2020 with a dozen co-conspirators after an extensive wire-tap investigation into drug trafficking and firearms sales in the region, U.S. Attorney Nick Brown said Wednesday in a press release.
