A Madison man was sentenced to four years in federal prison for distribution of crack cocaine, according to a release from the Department of Justice.

Christopher Curry, 39, pleaded guilty to these charges in August. The decision for a four-year sentencing and three-year period of supervision after release also took into account his involvement in other acts of distribution of crack cocaine and MDMA (also known as molly or ecstasy, officials said.

Curry was originally indicted by a federal grand jury in March for 10 counts of distribution of controlled substances dating back to November of 2015. Judge Peterson expressed concern for the safety of the public given the often inherent violence that accompanies drug trafficking, according to the release.

The charge against Christopher Curry was the result of an investigation conducted by the Dane County Narcotics Task Force and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to officials.
