Providence man faces federal prison for cocaine trafficking

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A Providence man is facing 20 years in federal prison for cocaine trafficking, United States Attorney Peter Neronha announced on Monday.

Kendall Ferrara, age 33, pleaded guilty to one count of distributing cocaine on Monday before U.S. District Court Judge Mary Lisi.

He will be sentenced on July 16, where he faces statutory penalties of up to 20 years imprisonment followed by three years to lifetime supervised release. He also faces a fine of $1,000,000.

Ferrara was arrested by members of the FBI Safe Streets Task Force in February, after an undercover operation made five purchases from Ferrara.

The purchases totaled more than 50 grams of cocaine.
