Kenyada Dukes was sentenced to 21 months in Federal prison for drug charges, according to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson. Dukes’ federal probation was also revoked.

Dukes, 33, was arrested by four law enforcement agencies on Sept. 8 for three counts of possession of controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence. The Dallas County Sheriff Office, ALEA, Drug Task Force and ATF Task Force all played a role in Dukes’ arrest.
