Former U.S. Rep. Phil Crane's son, George Washington Crane, was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday for "conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone," according to the U.S. Attorney's office in eastern Virginia.

From their news release:

Crane pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone on Sept. 11, 2013. According to court documents, between 2008 and 2011, Crane purchased Oxycodone several times each week from sources on the street in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Md. Crane then brought the Oxycodone to Leesburg, Va. and distributed the pills primarily to high school students and recent graduates. Crane sold Oxycodone to multiple customers daily from his residence and car.

He had pleaded guilty.

Rep. Phil Crane was a member of Congress from the northern suburbs for more than 30 years before being defeated by Democrat Melissa Bean in the 2004 election.
