RENO, NV (KOLO)-- A man guilty of drug trafficking was determined Friday to be a habitual criminal and was sentenced to life in prison with a chance for parole after 10 years, the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office said.

Brice James Daniels, 43, committed his sixth and seventh felonies while on probation for earlier felonies, the district attorney’s office said.

The Joint Reno and Sparks Crime Suppression Unit arrested Daniels on March 12, 2018 after he sold an ounce of methamphetamine and a quarter ounce of heroin in an undercover drug buy.

A prosecutor argued that despite chances for treatment and rehabilitation and despite having served prison time before, Daniels continued to commit felonies, the district attorney’s office said.

Daniels also has other prison sentences stemming from the drug sale and probation violation that add at least another 40 months in prison.
