Three Sentenced in Big Kansas City Drug Trafficking Case

Members of a drug conspiracy that distributed hundreds of pounds of cocaine in Kansas City, Kan. will spend the next few years in jail.

Andre Riggans, of Kansas City, Kan., received the shortest sentence for her connection to the drug ring Wednesday, at 5 years and three months.

Tina Johnson, of Overland Park, was sentenced to seven years. And Marcus Vaughn, of Topeka, sentenced to 10 years in jail.

U.S. Attorney Eric Melgren said the three distributed more than 330 pounds of cocaine.

In their pleas, all three admitted taking part in a drug trafficking conspiracy headed by co-defendant Savino Davila that operated from 2000 through 2006 in Kansas City, Kan.
