Rochester, N.Y. – A Rochester man convicted on drug charges has been sentenced to more than 12-and-a-half years in prison.

Yusef Blocker, 35, was convicted of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.

Prosecutors say drug paraphernalia and crack cocaine were found during a search of Blocker’s University Avenue apartment. At the time, Blocker had been under the supervision of the U.S. Probation and Pre-Trial Services Office following a federal drug trafficking conviction in 2005.
