Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man with a long history of felony convictions was sentenced today to just under five years in prison for a drug conviction.

32-year-old Jason Bennett entered a guilty plea this morning to a third-degree drug possession charge stemming from a traffic stop last December. The criminal complaint says Bennett was driving the vehicle that was stopped for a routine traffic violation, which led to a search in the discovery of a bag containing more than 17 grams of crack cocaine.

The prison sentence he received today will run concurrently with a 57-month prison term he received in September for a first-degree drug conviction in Duluth. His criminal history lists 14 convictions on felony-level charges and half of them were for drug offenses.
