ST. LOUIS (AP) – A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to about a year in prison after pleading guilty to federal charges that accused him of working with his brother, a former police sergeant, to sell marijuana.

Federal prosecutors say 43-year-old Linus R. Davis pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. He was sentenced Monday to one year and one day in prison. His brother, Larry Davis, pleaded guilty earlier and faces sentencing July 26.

Authorities say Larry Davis was a supervisory sergeant for a St. Louis police unit responsible for conducting investigations into illegal gang activities and drug distribution.
