2 Convicted In Drug Trafficking Face 60 Years

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Two people face up to 60 years in prison after being convicted of trafficking prescription drugs in the Bradenton area.

Attorney General Pam Bondi announced the convictions Tuesday of 28-year-old Celese Shere Gordon of Bradenton and 29-year-old Lapar Donta Conley of Parrish. Both were convicted of trafficking in oxycodone and conspiracy to traffic in oxycodone.

A sentencing date has not been set.

Bondi said the defendants used false patient information to get their prescription drug supply at a pain clinic in Tampa.
