HAMPTON, Fla. - The former mayor of Hampton who was convicted in April of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and illegal distribution of a controlled substance has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Barry Moore was also ordered to pay $875 in court costs.

Moore was arrested in November after Bradford County deputies said he sold prescription medication, namely oxycodone.
