A former Clay County constable convicted in a federal drug case has been sentenced to serve 19 years and seven months in prison.
The sentence for Jackie "The Tireman" Roberts was enhanced because he had several previous convictions, including for robbery, burglary and assault, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Kerry B. Harvey.
Those convictions qualified Roberts as a career criminal under federal law.
Roberts operated a used-tire store in Manchester and used his nickname in political campaigns.
