Two Callaway County men were sentenced to prison terms this week in a federal court in Jefferson City after pleading guilty to participating in a drug trafficking conspiracy.
Gary Randall Holloway, 34, Callaway County, was sentenced to four years in federal prison Tuesday for his involvement in his brother's drug trafficking conspiracy.
Holloway will serve the federal prison term without parole, the statutory maximum penalty.
In a separate but related case, Jeffrey Cordell Patterson, 41, Fulton, and Damon Reed Lower, 37, Columbia, were sentenced Monday for their role in the same drug trafficking conspiracy.
Patterson was sentenced to seven years, six months in federal prison without parole. Lower received a sentence of two years, six months in federal prison without parole.
On March 18, Holloway pleaded guilty to using a telephone to facilitate a drug trafficking conspiracy. Federal investigators earlier had intercepted telephone calls between Holloway and his brother, Jason Randall Holloway, 33, Callaway County.
