BALTIMORE (AP) -- An Elkton man has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.

Sixty-three-year-old David Graham was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Baltimore.

According to his plea agreement, Graham and a co-conspirator paid people to go to doctors' offices, get large prescriptions for oxycodone and other pills, and then sell many of the pills they obtained to Graham and the co-conspirator.

Prosecutors say about 1.4 million milligrams of oxycodone was distributed as part of the conspiracy.

Graham is the 15 person convicted in the conspiracy.
