A Johnson County man was sentenced Tuesday to seven years in prison for drug trafficking.
John Kline, 43, admitted in December that he had sold oxycodone pills to several undercover officers with the Kentucky State Police, according to a media release from the U.S. Attorney's office.
During one of the transactions, Kline was in possession of a loaded semiautomatic pistol.
Afterward, officers from ATF, Kentucky State Police and the Johnson County Sheriff's Office searched Kline's home and found hundreds of oxycodone pills and 17 firearms.
Under federal law, Kline will have to serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence.
