28-year-old Rondrekus Soileau (a.k.a. "Drake," a.k.a. "D") of Ville Platte was sentenced on Thursday to 74 months in prison followed by 4 years probation for Conspiracy to Distribute and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance. He pleaded guilty to the federal charges in December of 2019.

Information presented to the court says Soileau bought methamphetamine from a co-defendant approximately every other week, using his cell phone to arrange the purchases that involved quantities of one-half ounce of methamphetamine. Authorities say he sold some of it for profit and kept some of it for his own personal use.
