WICHITA , KN—Mario Hutton, 35, Wichita, has been sentenced to 96 months in federal prison on racketeering charges, U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch said today.

In his plea, Hutton admitted that as a member of the Crips street gang in Wichita he took part in a conspiracy to preserve, protect and expand the power of the gang through unlawful activities. He became associated with the gang in 1990 and took part in its activities through 2007. As an associate, he sold crack cocaine to both members of the Crips and non-members.

Hutton was arrested on Aug. 24, 2006, and again on Jan. 6, 2007. In both cases he was found in possession of crack cocaine.
