MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — A prosecutor says sentences handed down to a husband and wife prosecuted for prescription-drug trafficking conclude a case in which pills were obtained on monthly trips to Florida.

Knox County Prosecutor Chip McConville says the drug ring brought more than 80,000 pills with a street value of almost $2 million into Knox County.

Authorities say the majority of 12 people indicted last year traveled to Florida to obtain the prescriptions.

McConville said Terry Jacobs, who pleaded guilty last month, was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison on corruption and funding drug trafficking charges.

Jacobs' wife, Heather Jacobs, who also pleaded guilty last month, was sentenced to 90 days in jail and three years of community control on two counts of obstructing justice.
