Bluffton drug dealer sentenced to 25 years

A Bluffton drug dealer was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday following a two-day trial.

Matthew Frazier, 29 of Goethe Road, was convicted of trafficking cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack-cocaine and simple possession of marijuana following a series of drug buys by an informant working for the Beaufort-Jasper Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force last fall.

Following the trial, Judge Thomas A. Russo handed down a sentence of 10 years for trafficking cocaine and 15 years for possession with intent to distribute crack-cocaine. The sentences are to run consecutively.
