A federal judge sentenced an Upper St. Clair man on Tuesday to 21 years and 10 months in prison for cocaine trafficking.

David Curran, 29, pleaded guilty in August to one count of drug conspiracy and three counts of distributing cocaine. Curran was one of the leaders of a drug ring that bought cocaine from a Bosnian group operating in Columbus, Indianapolis and Chicago and distributed at least 15 kilograms of cocaine between March and October 2009, prosecutors say.

U.S. District Judge Terrence McVerry sentenced Curran to 10 years of probation and ordered him to pay $1,080,000, representing the gross proceeds he made from selling the 15 kilograms. The judge ordered the forfeiture of Curran's Upper St. Clair home, his 2003 Land Rover and about $16,000 that state police seized.
