Sacramento man gets 30 months for sale of crack near school

A Sacramento man was sentenced in federal court for selling crack cocaine near an Oakland elementary school.

Oscar Baker Phillips, 34, was sentenced Monday in Oakland to 30 months in prison, followed by six years of supervised release. Phillips pled guilty on March 5 to distribution of crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school.

In a plea agreement, Phillips admitted that on July 3 he sold .27 grams of "cocaine base" for $20 on Oakland's Sycamore Street, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California.

That location is within 1,000 feet of St. Andrew's Baptist Missionary Elementary School and Kindergarten.
