LAS VEGAS (AP) - A North Las Vegas man has been sentenced to 35 years in federal prison for a criminal conviction almost identical to one he got in 1994.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Nevada announced that 46-year-old Lomando Mark Scott was sentenced Monday on drug and gun charges.
Prosecutors say North Las Vegas officers arrested Scott in August 2010 while serving an eviction notice at his home. Authorities say he was a convicted felon who moved without notifying officials.
Police say they found nearly $11,000 in cash in his pockets, and 250 grams of crack cocaine and a loaded gun in his vehicle.
Federal law called for a 35-year sentence because of the type of crime and Scott's previous conviction, which sent him to federal prison the first time for 15 years.
