A Rocky Mount man will serve 12 months of a 10-year sentence for selling crack cocaine.

Sidrick Lamar Wright, 24, will serve the time in a detention and diversion center run by the Virginia Department of Corrections.

Wright pleaded guilty in November to two counts of distribution of crack cocaine. A third distribution charge was dismissed through a plea agreement.

Wright was also sentenced this week to three years probation and ordered to be of good behavior for 15 years and to pay $150 in restitution to the sheriff's office for money used to purchase the cocaine.

During his probation, Wright must maintain full-time employment, submit to random drug tests and participate in drug treatment.

Wright told the court he uses marijuana and sold the cocaine to make money, according to prosecutor Dwight Rudd.

The charges against Wright were the result of controlled drug buys arranged by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office. The first purchase was made on Dec. 15, 2012, at a dumpster site on U.S. 220 North. The second buy was made on April 5, 2013, on Windy Lane in Rocky Mount.
