A Georgetown man was convicted of selling crack cocaine to a confidential informant for police following a jury trial this week, according to the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s office.

Azikiwe Archie, 28, of Railroad Avenue was convicted of the charge Monday following a short trial and Circuit Court Judge Steven H. John sentenced him to 15 years in prison, said Nancy G. Cote, an assistant solicitor who prosecuted the case. The charge stemmed from police using a confidential informant who purchased crack cocaine from Archie, Cote said. The Georgetown Police Department and the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.
