A 33-year-old man was sentenced on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, to 12 to 24 years in state prison for three arrests involving gun and drug offenses, two arrests happening while he was out on bail. 

Austin Vaughn Carter, of Northampton Township, pleaded guilty in January to two counts of prohibited possession of a firearm and one count each of receiving stolen property and possession of a controlled substance for arrests that happened on Jan. 27, 2021, and Feb. 3, 2021. 

In December, Carter was found guilty of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance during a bench trial before Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey G. Trauger.   

On Tuesday, Trauger sentenced Carter to four to eight years for each of the three cases, each sentence running consecutively, for a total of 12 to 24 years of incarceration.
