Rochester, New York – On February 21, three men were convicted of unlawfully carrying firearms and trafficking marijuana in Rochester.

After being found guilty of distributing marijuana and using a handgun during the commission of a felony involving the distribution of drugs, J’Lyne Caldwell, age 30, was sentenced to five years in prison. After a similar conviction, Elisha Scott, age 22, and Strong King, age 20, will each spend a term of seven years in jail.
